An Origami Club is a great option for learning the art and craft

I have books on origami, I have read lots of instructions on it. I have watched and made lots of videos on it and all of this is good. Videos being probably the best of those. But.... there is nothing better than having a person actually show you how to make origami.

I recently had a sit down session with a friend and we worked our way through some difficult folds.

It is the best. But, if you don't know an origami expert what should you do?

You join an origami club! Yes, they are dotted all over the united states.



Note: If you are a member of a club or know of a club that's not on this list send me an email an I will add it:
