Origami Connect is OrigamiUSA’s program of online classes, open to anyone anywhere in the world, whether or not you are a member of OrigamiUSA. All you need is a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Origami Connect classes are taught in two sessions, Spring and Fall, with individual classes happening approximately monthly. See the class listing below. You do not need to be a member of OrigamiUSA to attend Origami Connect classes.
Classes are around 2 hours long. Live class size is limited to the first 100 registrants. All registrants will receive a link to the recording of the live event afterward. Register early! Registration and other information is in the MORE menu at upper right.
All Origami Connect presenters are experienced artists, folders, and/or teachers, and all Origami Connect events include a facilitator. Presenters are volunteers donating their time and talent to share the joy of origami and connect folders everywhere.
