ORIGAMI FOLDING CLUB
Established in June 2017 West Michigan Origami is a folding club (similar to a knitting club, but with paper). There is an official Facebook Group Page and/or an official web page on this website. Join either for notifications of upcoming meetups. Recommended ages are 8 and up. All experience levels are welcome. Bring a project you're working on or come learn. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.

NOW IN GREENVILLE, MI
For those of you who have asked for brick and mortar locations to be able to purchase Tinygamis I'm happy to announce my second retail location! You can now find this display at Home 2 Home right in downtown Greenville located at 310 Lafayette ST. where the Springrove Variety used to be located. Open 7 days a week. For additional locations please visit the SHOP link.

FAQ's

What kind of paper do I use? Where do I get my paper? Do I cut my paper into tiny pieces or buy it that small? These are the questions I've now been asked thousands of times. Since they are pretty consistent I thought I’d compile them together into an FAQ blog post.
