The first print of our latest book has arrived!
I have a confession to make. For many, many years, I have been somewhat condescending about those who use tools to flatten creases, although I’ve tried not to show it. Part of this was the use of “bone folders”, which as a vegetarian, I found entirely inappropriate – why would you fold with a dead […]
Here’s a model for a forthcoming book, “Origami in Space”. Designed by myself and my good friend Wayne Brown, we’ve done this a few times in the past – 2 heads are indeed better than one. It uses two (or more sheets) and is made in a few minutes.
Another fun-packed session with New Swaine Women’s Institute. I’m running many of these at the moment and they are going down really well 😉
A curious tale. My younger brother is a fan of “skip-ratting”, checking through to see if anything of interest has been thrown out. He has discovered some extraordinary finds; parts of a spitfire, old blueprints, Edwardian tools, all kinds of things. Recently he spotted a copy of this book (mint condition) and so dutifully passed […]
I opened the proceedings for the 2021 Spring BOS Vcon, teaching a design by my dear lost friend, Larry Hart. Conventions will never be quite the same without Larry’s smiling face. I followed that with a design of mine called “Boat For Two” – below is a delightful photo of it by Annette Bussmann. As […]
I’m starting a book called “Solar System Origami” and am open to any designs you might have on the subject. Please get in touch!
With “Origami With Love” now on sale, work is progressing on the follow-up, “Origami In Motion”.
My first self-produced book “Origami With Love” is now available in printed or e-book format – full of delightful models with a romantic theme. Go on, treat yourselves
I’ve just finished teaching a model to the CDO, a very attentive and sympathetic audience, who enjoyed seeing a fine example of how not to teach a model – I blame this on my video camera (unexpectedly) mirroring so that the act keeping the paper central reduced my already-limited capacity to think 😉
As requested, a brief run-through of how I use adobe illustrator to create origami diagrams. More details here.
I’m looking into producing some origami-themed decals that you can transfer onto many different surfaces, such as windows, laptops, fridges, even guitars! I’d like to know if there is any interest out there for these if I put some together in (for example) a pack of three?
Origags are a series of cartoons produced between ’74 & ’84 by Roberto Morassi and originally published in British Origami. Due to popular demand, they are published on the Internet for the first time. You are strongly advised to read the story behind the gag series before enjoying these classics! Watch each gag on it’s […]
Trumpigami Some people feel that origami shouldn’t mix with politics or religion, but we believe that like any art-form, there should be no barriers to how you express yourself through origami. If easily offended or right-wing, please navigate elsewhere! People may not a like a point of view but satire is as old as the […]
POPPADOM® stands for People Out Practising Paperfolding And Dining On Masala. It’s a club for people who enjoy both origami and Indian meals, ideally, both at the same time! POPPADOM® is part of a wider organisation known as BOGS (British Origami Gourmet Society), who organise Chinese and italian evenings, amongst others! Membership is free, but a commitment to good eating and even better […]
Composed by Ron “Bonsai” Nichols, this catchy song is perfect for any type of folding event. Here are the lyrics with chords, ukelele tab, a complete midi file and a orisong of sheet music, complete with proper notes and whatnot. For all 4-string wizards out there, here’s a ukelele version, adapted from the original by our very […]
