At last! A book on Golden Venture Origami - a big thank you, to author Maria Angela Carlessi. I've been meaning to spotlight this nifty 3-D paper folding technique, which uses interlocking triangles to build up a project. It requires time and patience - which I guess fits in with the mindful crafting vibe. The author is the proprietor of a craft shop in Italy. She was looking for a technique to attract her customers - and she got hooked on this intriguing origami variation. The projects are all twee creatures - so this book would be an ace pre-half-term purchase. (Cutesy animals do seem to be a primary end product of Golden Venture.) Even if cute animals are not your thing, the basic how-tos at the front-of-the book are a goldmine of well-presented technique info. So... you can learn the basics and take the craft wherever you want to go. There are clear photo step-by-steps accompanied by text. The author does a really good job of incorporating pattern and colour into her projects. (I can see how the run-up to a colour change would engender crafty anticipation, as in knitting or crochet!) The Swan with the diamond motifs is a prime example of this. ( BTW, Golden Venture swans are a thing - and Maria Angela Carlessi's one is just right - colourful and not too intricate.) My favourite projects are the previously-mentioned Swan, the Tortoise, the Owl, and the Squirrel. These are charming without being too twee. It is fascinating how curvilinear shapes can be built up from interlinking triangular pockets.
For a clear introduction to a papercraft variation that is growing in popularity, 3D Origami fills the bill.* The Papercraft Post *
The book is so descriptive and the multitude of photos help you catch the bug of 3D origami straight away! I love many crafts and have many books, but this has truly stood out as one of my favourites as it is so helpful. Lovely characters to create. Children could even help towards making the components. Well worth a look!
