The success of the OrigamiUSA Convention depends upon our volunteer teachers! If you teach at the Convention, you may be eligible for Priority Ticketing. Details of how Priority Ticketing works are here.

If you would like to teach, please register by May 23 so that we can plan the class schedule.

Remember that we must have the creators' permission to teach their designs, and that diagrams may be distributed only with permission from the diagrammer and creator.

If you have any questions, write to us, and mark your envelope Convention 2014 Teaching, or contact us at convention-teaching [at]

Register to Teach A Class

These forms are for those who know what they want to teach (at least approximately). If you don't know what you want to teach, take a look at what people are requesting, or for further ideas, please contact us at convention-teaching [at]

Please note: you must register for convention (even if you are not taking classes) before you can sign up to teach.

  • Online registration for Convention Teaching is now closed.

Class Previews

When you register to teach a class, a description of your class will immediately appear on our new class preview web pages. Within the teaching registration form you will have the option to upload a photo of your model, which will be shown on the class preview web page. Uploading a photograph is optional. Although you will not have a chance to add a photo once you have completed this form, please do not delay telling us what you want to teach and fill out the form if you don't have a photo—people will still want to see the class description.

Once your teaching form is entered, the following fields will be shown on the class preview web page: Teacher Name, Model Name, Description, Level, Special Requirements (if any), and Image (the photo, if you uploaded one).
