Last September, we had an extra action model workshop. The topic was Spinning Top! It was really lots of fun!
It was such a great workshop! We had lots of fun spinning them!

There are quite some spinning top tutorials on Youtube. Here are a few models that I’d like to recommend.
1. Origami Spinning Top designed by Yami Yamauchi, a great Japanese Origamist.
Another print pattern is called “Benham’s Disk”. When the model spins, it will give you an optical illusion. You can download the pattern here.
2. Spinning Top by Manpei Arai
It is an intermediate level model which requires one sheet of paper with duo-color. Recommended paper size is 15cmx15cm. Video tutorial is instructed by Sara Adams from Happyfolding.com
3. Modular Spinning Top
This model requires 3 sheets of paper. Recommended paper size is 15cmx15cm.
We had some new participants who were not so sure about their paper folding talent. But in the end, they were really happy about the results! 🙂
