Scottish Mini Meetings

Scottish “mini meetings” are held on the last Sunday of the odd months (i.e. January, March, May, etc.). These are purely informal gatherings of folders who come together to teach and to learn new (at least to them) models.  The locations for the meetings vary but are commonly split between Livingston, and Cairneyhill.  You don’t need to be an experienced folder, just come along and have fun folding!

Origami Scotland

Welcome to the website of Origami Scotland! In reality we are simply a bunch of paperfolders in Scotland who get together every now and again to do some folding. Most of us are members of the British Origami Society. We also do teaching, displays, exhibitions……

2013-01-27 Mini Meeting

An excellent mini meeting held in Livingston with some which saw Partha return for his first mini-meeting for a while, and a warm welcome to Olivia, our first new face in quite a while.

Lots of folding was achieved although only a couple of models – Martin led us through folding a simple Owl by Roman Diaz as a warm up, and then Dennis took us through what was probably our longest folding session to date where we all managed to fold Hideo Komatsu’s horse, albeit after much rustling, repeat explanations and cries of “you want us to do what?”  A difficult model to teach, but extremely satisfying to achieve.  Hopefully we haven’t scared away our new recruit!
