World Origami Days

The World Origami Days are almost here. Celebrate origami by spreading the joy of paper folding during the upcoming World Origami Days, held each year from October 24–November 11, a celebration of the international community of origami!

Help make origami as visible as possible: teach a class, fold on the bus, give your friends origami, exhibit your models. The possibilities are limitless, just as with origami itself.

November 11 will be Origami Day in Japan.

October 24 is the birthday of Lillian Oppenheimer (1898-1992), who founded the first origami group in America. She was also one of the founders of the British Origami Society and Origami USA. A dynamic woman, she was delighted in the magic to be found in a piece of paper and wanted to share it with the world.
