Schedule

FoldFest consists of four class sessions separated by 2-hour breaks. Each class session will be 4-5 hours long and contain two parallel tracks of presenters, all on Zoom (visit our Zoom tips page if you're new to using it).

Each session will be supported by an on-screen facilitator to interact live with the presenter, and a moderator in charge of the online Q&A. Participants may submit questions to the Q&A, which the moderator will either respond to, or elevate to the facilitator for live on-camera response. Note that we may not be able to answer every question live, but we will do our best to respond to every question. As always, please be respectful in your communications, as outlined in the OrigamiUSA Code of Conduct.
