I learnt most of the origami by watching youtube tutorials. While making the first few prototypes, I realize that it is important to make the crease as good as possible because it would impact the final product a lot. I had to remake a lot of animals because the paper broke or the final didn’t come out as expected.
At first, I planned to make baskets and boats with used plastic, but since the FAB lab is closed, I don’t have access to much plastic. The alternative to plastic is paper, however, it is difficult to build things with paper. Instead of making baskets and boats, Mr. Q inspired me to do origami with recycled paper. I hope I am able to inspire others to reuse wasted materials and improve my own creativity and innovation. I might think this is going to be challenging because I don’t have any previous origami experiences.
