Origami expert Kathleen Sheridan teaches unique origami models. Explore the wonders of paper folding — there’s math in every fold.

To participate, you’ll need several sheets of printer paper as well as several sheets of square paper (size should be 5.5″ – 8.5”). Origami paper is preferred – available to ship now from the online shop at MoMath, but you can cut your own squares from any paper.

No experience is required — but there’s folding to engage every level.
