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.
