Shop early for Xmas

Lots of fascinating items in my shop – go on, treat yourself to something 😉

Visit my shop?

In an effort to get my house back(!), i’m having a clear out of duplicates and some books i’ll never use again, plus some of the weird and wonderful origami “things” I’ve picked up over the years. It’s also the sole site for Hans Werner Guth’s superb wooden folding tools. Feel free to pick up […]

Office Origami

Toilet roll folding

I provided artwork and expertise to the Tork paper towel company for their Linkedin page. My hand were too “rough and industrial” for the video, so a younger model followed my folding cues. Watch the videos here.

Large scale doves

My hands were deemed to rough and industrial for the purpose, so she was “volunteered”!  She had never folded before, so faced a steep learning curve, since toilet paper is not easy to work […]

Japan Society

I have been added to the Japan Society website 😉
