World Origami Days 2021

While the COVID-19 pandemic may have forced the cancellation of many in-person origami events, you can still enjoy World Origami Days (WOD). The Origami Connect Team and the PCOC Team have put together 19 days of online origami classes, October 24November 11, 2021. Each day will honor a different category of origami (e.g. tessellations, modular, representational, etc.). This event will be a fundraiser for the 2023 Pacific Coast OrigamiUSA Conference.
