For much of this year, Joan Sallas and the Folding Didactics group have been organising online origami classes in the Ukraine with the help of Ukrainian teachers. He passed a request for paper to the BOS and we were delighted to help. With fingers crossed, we sent a parcel of paper to teacher Natali Fatieieva in Zaporizhia (the target of heavy bombing) and were delighted to receive a short “unpacking” video and a sincere message of thanks.
It may be a tiny effort in terms of the war, but it’s wonderful to know that origami is helping the children there.
Folding Didactics are organising a virtual conference “Folding For Ukraine” on 29th January 2023, with classes from Michael LaFosse, Paul Jackson and others. They ask for a minimum of 2 euros to attend and the money will help to organise a real conference in Freiburg during March, where we hope to have several Ukrainian teachers in attendance.
