Course Summary

This course is designed for complete beginners or people with little experience in origami. This course is for anyone looking to build a strong foundation in their origami skills.

You will learn how to fold over 25 different origami models. In addition, you will also learn how to fold 8 origami bases. Bases are the building blocks of origami. They are fundamental to origami because many origami are made from a base, and each base can be made into almost anything. Sometimes, bases can be made into other bases! First, you will learn how to fold a specific base, and then you will directly apply your new knowledge by folding origami using that base.

Starting with the basics, the course will cover choosing paper and how to cut out a square from any rectangular paper. After that, you’ll learn about the two basic types  of folds in origami, and then you’ll practice right away by folding your first origami of the course: a flower.

Next, you will learn other types of folds and practice these by folding a stem for the flower. The next few videos will cover helpful tools in origami, how to use them, and tips and tricks to making amazing origami creations.

Then, the you will dive in to folding! First, you will learn to fold origami which require no base. For origami made from bases, you will learn each base and then fold origami which can be made from that particular base.

Some origami you will learn how to fold:

  • Cowboy hat

  • Ninja star

  • Swan

  • Peacock

  • Elephant

  • Piano

  • Crane

  • ... and lots more!

The eight bases you will learn are:

  • Cupboard base

  • Kite base

  • Helmet base

  • Blintz base

  • Square base

  • Waterbomb base

  • Organ base

  • Bird base

After completing the course, you will have the skills and knowledge in order to fold even more complex origami.

This complete introduction to origami is packed with tutorials, resources, and tips which allow you to work at your own pace and master origami fundamentals.
