Community Origami Groups


Are you a lone folder, wondering if there are any other people who share your magnificent obsession with origami? Are you moving to a new area and wondering if you can get together with other folders? You may not be as alone as you think! There are folding groups in cities all over the country—indeed, all over the world!—and origami people are famous for their friendliness and willingness to share tips, techniques, and ideas for folding!

So, if you'd like to see if there's a folding group nearby, you can check out our list of Community Origami Groups by using the links below. You'll find locations, contact information, and dates and places where they hold their meetings. Note that all of the lists can be sorted by any column—click on the arrows in the column titles. If you spot anything that needs updating, please let our Groups Editor know via email at community-groups [at]

Add Your Group to our List

If you would like to have your Community Origami Group listed, you can create your own listing.

To create a Community Origami Group listing, please sign in to your website account and come back to this page. If you don’t have an account, you can register for one here.

You can update your listing at any time (or remove it, if the group no longer meets). Once a year, you will receive a reminder notification to check and update your listing.

Members planning to form a group may refer to the Community Origami Groups Handbook (below) for ideas.

Members looking for help creating or maintaining a group might also consider joining the OrigamiUSA members' maling list; you can also likely find other members in your area to kick things off.
