The sessions have two different objectives: on one hand, to know the culture of origami (diagrams, specialized words, its classifications, mathematics, etc.), on the other, to experiment through folding (trying out new ideas and learning to express oneself creatively) ). That is why we will carry out very varied activities, although always related to origami. What I want to highlight is that the sessions are much more than teaching the steps to fold some models (figures). As an example, for certain activities you should take notes like in any formal class, but in others you will participate in challenges that call for creativity. Live online sessions. For people from 10 to 150 years old, you DON'T need previous knowledge in origami, and it is NOT only for minors. Six people in a single group tops.
Professionally I work in the human and social sciences, having several years of experience as a teacher. Regarding origami, I have been seriously dedicated to this art-form since 2010. I currently have around 80 models of my own design. Some have been included in publications from Spain, Great Britain, and the country. I am the founder of the international "Folding Together FoTo meetings", also the series of hands-on presentations with international guest-speakers "Foldeas: Sharing Ideas through Origami", and the collaborative blog Neorigami. I was the editor of the book "Practigami". Wrote the foreword to the special issue of the Spanish origami magazine "Pajarita 2013" and published different articles in specialized magazines. Was interviewed for the electronic origami fanzine "Mini Neo"; I was also a member of their editorial team. Lastly, I have exhibited in different libraries and university institutions.
I offer six sessions in total. They can be daily, every other day, weekly ... however you see fit. The first four will take 1 hour and 30 min, and the last two 2 hours (10 hours in total), so to make the most of each one. With the discount, they cost a total of $ 235 for a single person. In the case of a group, an additional $ 40 is charged for each student after the first. The group cannot have more than six students. The total value must be paid before the first session through Paypal.
More than 50 hours of experience in origami workshops both in-person and online.
