Group Lessons
Round up a few friends and learn to fold together. Group lesson rates vary based on the size of the group.

Eight Session Origami Crash Course
In eight 75-90 minute sessions, you’ll learn the fundamental folds, bases, and numerous models to start you on the path to becoming an origami master. Each session focuses on a particular base, teaching the principles of origami through 3-4 models derived from that bases.

In four sessions, you’ll learn the fundamentals of origami through folding all twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

Origami Workshops

Standard Origami Workshop
In a 30, 60, or 90 minute workshop, you’ll learn about the basic history of origami, some of the common folds, bases, principles, and approaches to folding origami, and immediately apply them to make 3-4 models.

Scrap Paper Origami Workshop
Does your office have too much scrap paper? We’ll cut that paper into squares and fold animals, planes, flowers, and so on. Origami can be a refreshing break in the workday, and it’s  a perfect corporate team building activity.

Themed Origami Workshop
Same as the Standard Workshop, but the models are picked around a theme. Possible themes include (but are not limited to):

  • Origami History: Learn more about the history of Origami while folding traditional and contemporary models that demonstrate how the art form has developed and evolved over time, including traditional Eastern models, traditional Western models, and contemporary models.
  • Origami Aviary: Birds.
  • Origami Menagerie: Animals
  • Origami Garden: Flowers, Bugs, Butterflies, etc.
  • Origami Ocean: Fish, Penguins, Seals, etc.
  • Modular Origami: Modular Origami involves folding the same unit over and over again, then combining the units to make shapes and structures. Have each person fold all the units to make their own model, or work together to fold units to make one big model.

“Jeff was such an amazing teacher. He came to our home and even brought the special paper with him. Our son who is 7 and his friends (8-9 yrs) thoroughly enjoyed learning how to fold origami and it was a creative fun way to spend the afternoon. We hope to do it again soon.”
