Apart from the monthly Origami regulars' table it is also possible to book courses on various topics with me. The offer is primarily aimed at school classes, teachers or groups of creative professionals. Folding in the community and learning from others is great fun. There is also the option to book individual lessons or origami as a supporting program for your event. Take a look at the current dates or send me your individual Inquiry. Here is a selection of topics that I like to deal with:

Origami basics

I love infecting people with my enthusiasm for origami and getting them "addicted" as well. I have always been fascinated by paper as a material in all its different qualities. In classic origami, Japanese washi qualities are primarily used. For the success of an object and the joy of doing it, not only the choice of model plays a role, but also the quality of the paper is important. Folding is twice as much fun with the wonderful origami papers from Japan with their great patterns.

Advanced Origami

In smaller groups you can easily devote yourself to more complex models. The prerequisite for this is good previous knowledge of origami folding so that you don't overwhelm yourself or run out of breath. Because difficult objects require significantly more time and stamina. But the joy of a successful model is priceless. For more complex models, the paper often has to be specially prepared or advanced techniques such as "wetfolding" or "crumpling" are used. 

Folded boxes with Japanese patterns


A particularly popular topic that is incredibly fun. Boxes, bags and envelopes are often the “gateway drug”. Once you start doing it, you can't get away from it. The variety of models is particularly large and there is always something new to discover. I like to show modular versions, where several identical “building blocks” are folded and then put together. Gluing or cutting is not necessary. These boxes are particularly stable and look very nice.

Origami with textiles

Folding textiles is a particularly fun challenge. I use techniques such as shadow folding, pleating using paper templates and sewing folds. This creates new structures and surfaces, which in turn invite further experimentation. New areas of application are being explored and the interesting shadow effects are being investigated. It is also amazing how different materials work when they are used in the same technique.

Notebook made from recycled calendar sheets


One of my favorite topics is upcycling. Paper is thrown away in large quantities, but many preserving papers, postcards, old books or expired calendars are of excellent quality and can be used to create something new again. You often keep magazines with beautiful pictures for years because you can't part with them. They are great for making beautiful boxes or gift bags. Newspaper can also be folded into practical bags for organic waste.

Easy Origami

Children love to play. Dynamic models such as spinning tops, animals, planes and other “action models” can easily be folded out of paper. At the same time, fine motor skills and spatial thinking are trained. In addition, both hands are needed equally, which in turn connects the hemispheres of the brain and creates new synapses in the brain. The resulting objects encourage children to become inventive and creative themselves. It is quite astonishing what new models seem to emerge so easily here.
