Course Description

If you love the look of Origami but were worried that it seems complicated to make, then this course is for you!

Until recently, if you wanted to learn how to make Origami by yourself, you had to rely on Origami diagrams in books. Although the diagram system is a clever notation, it can be difficult to decipher! So that leaves many Origami aficionados struggling to figure out how to get their model from one diagram to the next, which can be very frustrating! Origami should be enjoyable! With the help of these video tutorials you’ll see that it’s easy to create complex and elegant Origami models! Each lesson is between 4 and 10 minutes and gets you from the flat piece of paper to the completed model!

The Course Includes

  1. Origami Video Lessons: To make 7 traditional Origami models: Peace Crane, Flapping Crane, Boat, Butterfly, Star Box, Jumping Frog and Lily Flower.
  2. Printable Origami Paper: 12 original designs ready for you to print using your home or office printer. So you can make beautiful Origami today, if you like!
  3. Origami Crease Patterns: An Origami Crease Pattern shows where all the folds need to be on a flat piece of paper, to make a particular Origami model. These can be used as the basis of the design of Origami paper for a specific model: With Photoshop or by printing it out and colouring it in! Crease patterns are included for all the models featured in the course: Peace Crane, Flapping Crane, Boat, Butterfly, Star Box, Jumping Frog and Lily.
  4. Recommended Origami Paper: Where to buy great Origami paper online (US)

Also with the lifetime access and the mobile app, you’ll always have a refresher in your pocket, in case you forget how to make them!

Instructor Biography

Christian Fernandez, CEO at Best-Course-Online.com

I’m an avid learner and get great satisfaction from teaching! My varied skills and interests range from Origami, though Music & Writing to Excel!

I love learning and I love teaching even more! I’ve had a lifelong interest in Origami and recently fulfilled an ambition to visit Japan! This further fueled my interest in Origami. Origami books are great but creating this video based online course is a wonderful way to continue the tradition of Origami and enable even more people to learn and enjoy this ancient art form.

Feel free to get in touch directly or via my course page if you have suggestions about my course or feedback in general: I usually check into Udemy several times a week and I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve my contributions to online learning, thanks!
