My name's Sara Adams, and I discovered origami for myself during Christmas 2005. I've been hooked ever since. The intention of this site is to get you hooked, too. You've been warned! — Now go enjoy some instructional videos, pictures in the gallery, and all the rest of it. And most importantly, happy folding!

New diagrams: Eifel Star, Crane, Flapping Bird

I don't diagram stuff very often, but once in a while I do find the time and ambition. No, sorry, I didn't say design - just diagram. In the diagrams section you'll find two new diagrams I created:
  • Eifel Star by Hans-Werner Guth Hans-Werner Guth's Eifel Star
    I'll let you in on a secret: I'll make a video on this soon, and probably in German.
  • Crane and Flapping BirdTraditional crane and flapping bird
    As these are very well-known models many beginners may attempt, I decided to indicate clearly where there are several layers of paper and such.

Freising 2010

Update: Pictures of the convention at origami-treffen.de!

Last night I got back from the 2010 Freising origami meeting. What a great event!

I've posted some pictures of the display areas at http://www.happyfolding.com/gallery?convention=312, and more stuff will be added some time later.

Origamido Paper for Sale!

I probably shouldn't be telling you this, because I haven't had the chance to order some myself yet, but:

I just discovered (mere seconds ago) that Nicoloas Terry is currently selling a very limited stock of Origamido paper. It's specialist origami paper made by Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander, and it's a rare opportunity indeed to be able to buy it online (rather than flying to Hawaii).

Between the Folds: Streaming online

Update: "Between the Folds" is now also available on Netflix.

If you're interested in origami, you might have heard about the film "Between the Folds". I have heard several enthusiastic reports about it, not just by origami enthusiasts, but also those without prior exposure to origami. The film was even honoured with the Peabody Award 2010.

Now here's the exciting news: today I received a message that the film is currently streaming online. That means you can watch the film for free, and experience the exhilarating beauty and wonder documented. It's currently being streamed on http://video.pbs.org/video/1340426590/.
