At Kents Hill Park Conference Centre, Milton Keynes 7-8 September 2019

Special Guests
This year we are excited to welcome two special guests:

Joining us are Paola Bascetta, an Italian mathematician known mostly for his geometric 2D and 3D modular designs.

And Eric Vigier from France. The self styled “Mad Folder”. A profesional origami artist since 2014, a selection of his figurative and fanatastical work can be seen here.

Free Folds
We’re sure many of you fold a great deal of origami designs, but what do you do with them afterwards? We’re asking you to sort out a box of cast-offs, “not quite there” models and those simply surplus to rquirements, and put them in a box (anonymously) at the convention for others to take home with them. What isn’t right for you may give someone else hours of fun, working out how it was made. Anything left over will be donated to a school.

Contributing
Anyone interested in contributing to the programme or assisting with the convention in anyway should contact the organisers (see below). As usual we will be holding an Exhibition, please bring along your latest origami endeavours; we thrive on your origami work, be it old, new, perfect or in the course of completion – original or an interpretation of another’s work, even gallant failures with a story to tell are welcome! Other folders always enjoy hearing these tales, and frequently we learn surprising things about exhibits.

If you would like to teach during the weekend, please complete our online form. It really helps us if we know in advance.

We’re also looking for diagrams for our Model Collection – don’t be shy, share your designs!

Volunteers
The programme organisers, would be delighted to hear from you if you would like to teach your own model (we need models of all levels). We would like teachers to explain briefly before or during their session how they came to create their particular model. Apart from teaching you could offer to help in the supplies shop, arrange the exhibition table, or assist with preparing paper for folding groups.
