the Society

a minimeeting in SheffieldMini-meetings

Inevitably, the folding appetites of many people are not whetted by two conventions a year, so the BOS organises local meetings, generally once a month. These meetings are mostly informal with about a dozen people attending on average.

The idea is to bring along any new (or old!) books you have found, any folds you are struggling with, any origami memorabilia and show them to other local members.

Folds are taught, stories exchanged and a good time is had by all. If you'd like to come along, just give the organiser a ring to check all is "as advertised" and off you go!

There are still huge areas of Britain not covered by mini-meetings - if you are in an "origami oasis", please get in touch so we can help you set meetings up! Specific meeting dates may well be on our events listing. If you want more company, try one of our conventions!
