Members of ADROIT,
Welcome to 2020. Our December meeting was a big success – I gave a presentation at the Lincoln Experience Center in Frisco and raised more than $500 for Paper for Water!
Our January meeting is going to be a big one – I’d like to get 2020 off to a good start for ADROIT. I still have a few things to clear up to make sure it’s possible, but the plan is that I will lead a demonstration on how to create Tissue-Foil Origami Paper!
The meeting will be Thursday, January 16, 6-8 pm at the Renner Frankford Library.
The main focus of the meeting will be a
TISSUE FOIL PRESENTATION
I will teach those who show up how to create a type of origami paper known as Tissue Foil. Tissue foil paper is created by combining tissue paper and foil using a spray adhesive. I will bring all required supplies, but if you have a specific tissue paper that you would like to use (or even a foil), or just would like to experiment, feel free to bring some of your own supplies.
There are several benefits to using Tissue Foil paper:
The demonstration will go more or less like this:
We will go outside (Yes, outside. You may want to bring a jacket or something.)where things will be set up. First I will make a sheet of tissue foil in front of everyone, going through each step so that everyone can understand. Then people can begin to make their own – I intend to have a few stations set up, so multiple people can be doing it at once. It takes several people to make a good sheet anyways, so teamwork whoop. I’ll bring all the supplies. Once everyone who wants a sheet has one, we’ll clean up and then go back inside, where we can cut them to square depending on how much time we have left.
Other business at the meeting: we may take down or adjust our display at the library.
We NEED to discuss meeting times for the coming 4 months as I may have a scheduling conflict.
I have some pretty big good news.
There will be the regular announcements and such. If we have time to fold some of the tissue foil we make, might try that.
Anyways that’s about all. I’ll keep y’all posted if anything changes. Please show up and don’t forget to invite friends, these meetings are still open to the public.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there,
This calendar will have the dates for all scheduled upcoming meetings and events.
