We have had to cancel our Autumn convention due to the coronavirus pandemic, so instead we are going to hold a one-day virtual convention (BOS Vcon 2020) on Sunday 13th September 2020. This will use the popular Zoom online system. We suggest you install their “app” to your computer and try to attend some of the many Zoom origami meetings so you can get to know how it works. On the 12th, there will be a virtual AGM for members only, along with a 2-part class by Assia Brill.

Starting at 10am UK time there will be 7 classes of 45 minutes each, with 15 minutes extra for questions etc. The day before, we will be holding our AGM also using Zoom (with a short class before and after), this will be for members only. Login details will shortly be posted in the members area.

The sessions of the convention will be recorded and made available for delegates to download for a limited time after the convention.

Booking has closed for this event.
