We are thrilled to be celebrating World Origami Days (WOD) virtually with our folding friends from around the globe via Zoom. The Origami Connect Team and the PCOC Team have put together 19 days of online origami classes, October 24November 11, 2022. Each day will honor a different category of origami (e.g. tessellations, modular, representational, etc.).

This year we are pleased to have a special collaboration with JOAS (Japan Origami Academic Society). We will have many Japanese creators sharing their original creations. We will also have a live streamed event from OrigamiMIT this year. Boice Wong and Brandon Wong will team-teach and stream a live class from their in-person conference. World Origami Days 2022 will be a fundraiser for the 2023 Pacific Coast OrigamiUSA Conference.

The entire event is being offered for the low price of only $40, with a $5 discount for OrigamiUSA members.

All classes will be recorded with recordings posted shortly after each class is finished.
