About us …

       Do you have a passion for making beautiful designs out of paper or  do you want to try something new and exciting? The Origami Society will give you the opportunity to spend a few relaxing, fun and productive hours a week learning how to make all kinds of different things from the simple sheet of paper. We teach the art of origami to everyone, whether beginners or experts delivering a weekly origami course and other fun sessions. Whether you have a lot of experience  or want to try something new, you are welcome to join.

       In our weekly sessions, you can let your creativeness flourish by learning to fold a simple square of paper into a world of possibilities. You will even get the opportunity to display your work at the spring convention of the British origami society which is happening in Colchester. Choose to join the Origami Society and you will become part of a small community of paper folders. Here you can practice your extracurricular paper folding skills in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
