OMG NYC (Origami Meetup Group! New York City) is a group for people to come together and share the beautiful art of Origami. Origami is an ancient art of folding various mediums, most commonly paper. Other materials often folded are fabric, wire mesh, sheet metal, tissue, thin plastic, cardboard, and straws. The word comes from the combination of the Japanese verb oru (to fold) and the noun kami (paper).
We meet at least once a month as a big group, to teach each other new models and share paper, books, and tips; also to organize special folding retreats and paper shopping tours in the city. Our regular schedule is every Third Saturday of the month.
Also we have evening after work meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays evening called WTF (Weekly Tuesday Folders) and AWOL (After Work Origami Lovers) check out the calendar for more details. It's a smaller more intimate group of origami friends that meet to fold fold fold.
We have also added local meetings in Brooklyn (4th Saturdays -BOP - Brooklyn Origami Pals)!
Anyone is welcome! Come AWOL with us! This group is open to folders of all levels, from beginners interested in starting a new hobby to the advanced folder... So Come Join Us & Get Into The fold!!
