Welcome Back to the Saturday Night Solar!
Michele the Ubiquitous of the Canton of Hawkes Reache joins us to teach us how to make an Origami seahorse and hippocampus! Origami is a period art of folding paper to make three-dimensional models.
Michele created the hippocampus model for Alexandre and Eularia’s investiture since she couldn’t find a seahorse model that captured the look of a seahorse from a medieval bestiary.

Michele the Ubiquitous lives in the Canton of Hawkes Reache in the Barony of An Dubhaigheainn with her lord Robert d’Whitmont, and Smoky the murder bunny (the Vicereine’s lepus defensorem). She has served as Canton A&S Minister & Seneschal. Before moving to Hawkes Reache, Michele lived in Unclaimed Crown Lands (Jersey City) and Whyte Whey. She is known for her enthusiasm for the textile arts and her ability to convince people to join in her wild and woolly IDEAS! Notably entering the Fleece to Shawl Competition at the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival with a team composed of other textile artists from East Kingdom in GARB and hosting a Pennsic U Pity workshop, where she convinced a group of friends to help her conduct a study of how cochineal reacts to various mordants and after baths for just a couple of examples.
Michele has leveraged her experience teaching origami in the mundane world into the SCA, by teaching origami at events and gatherings within the SCA. These include, but are not limited to, A&S nights in Brokenbridge & Hawkes Reache, Hrim Schola, Pennsic, and various demos.
