The British Origami Society is a group devoted
to the art of paper-folding, also known by the Japanese word "Origami".


We are a registered charity and our members work in
schools, hospitals, youth clubs and many other places to
spread the word about origami

Beginner or Expert

Whatever your level, we have the resources for you


Meeting other folders is a great
experience, and one of the best places to
do this is at a convention.
