Australia DayYoshi's Grand Day Out
Martin and Steven arrived early (7:45) with Yoshi the dinosaur, because cars had to be removed from the area before 8:45. They were ready for a busy day of folding and teaching. Martin had already folded hats for everyone (my design taught at the December MOG meeting) and a collection of caterpillar modules. I arrived at 9 am with plenty of time before the 10 am start. We decided to take Yoshi for a walk and see what we could in case the day turned out to be hectic. Photos below.
Teaching started just before 10 am with other events for the day including classic cars, music, face painting and petting tree frogs.
We assembled Martins' units but since the activity was out doors and it was windy we decided modular were probably not a good idea. Gary arrived around 11 am and began to teach flapping birds and spanish boxes. Steve had a chess board he had folded, (original design) that he showed us. He said the folding time would be about 3 hours after pre creasing.

Brenda arrived just before 1 pm giving everyone a chance to take a break from teaching or look at the other exhibits.

The days activities finished at 4 pm with Martin, Brenda and I staying behind to pack up. We learned a lot about folding and teaching outdoors in windy conditions. We were very grateful the temperature didn't get to 43C - 106F as it had the day before. Thanks to everyone who gave up their Sunday to teach and spread the joy of paper folding.
