Last year I was approached by a few members of the British Origami Society at various fairs & markets.
Don't worry it is not some clandestine underground folding club, well I don't think it is anyway. Just a group of people passionate about the mathematical technicalities of folding paper as well as the beauty of the models themselves. Every quarter a magazine is published with origami news & articles, folded models and instructions. Take a look at their website as it is full of articles and information for the beginner and the expert.
This weekend, they are having their first convention in Scotland and it is at my old university halls, at Pollock Halls Edinburgh.
It is open to members and non members alike and there are guest speakers from all over the world. I am particularly excited about hearing the mathematics behind Toshikazu Kawasaki's folding theorems and seeing the models designed by some of the members. If you can't make don't worry as I will be reporting back in September.
