Learning origami: A beginner’s guide to the art of paper folding

April 17, 2020

Following orders to shelter-in-place, you might have found yourself with an abundance of free time. Are you interested in using this time to learn something new? Try origami! All you’ll need is one square sheet of paper per tutorial. If you don’t have one, you can adjust the dimensions of a printer paper by simply folding a corner to the opposite edge, forming a triangle. Remove the excess paper, and unfold.

The tutorials below are sorted by ascending order of difficulty. If you’re new to origami, check out the first two tutorials on how to create a cat and a box. Towards the bottom are tutorials on making cranes, lilies and dragons — for anyone looking for a challenge. Happy folding!
