Foldageddon: Foldin' Around the Christmas Tree

Yes, you heard me right guys. There's going to be a Festive Foldageddon!

We'll be meeting on the 12th December from 4pm in The Victoria Pub (which is just after Craft Swaparama, which is my exciting new project, so come to that as well) where we will be folding special Christmas designs, including decorations and practical models, and a very special surprise! Decorate your home with origami this Christmas, and give your friends the gift of folds!


This is proving a very popular event, and places are limited, so if you are interested you MUST book a ticket. Tickets are free, and are available from eventbrite

We can't guarantee entry without a ticket!

Foldageddon at Handmade Nation

In case you didn't know, Leeds International Film Festival is on at the moment. Spread across several sites in the city, the three week long festival showcases the best of cinema from around the world. So far I've seen films about everything from russian metereologists to a plastic horse. It is a truly awesome event.

And it just got more awesome, because Foldageddon just got involved.

On Sunday 14th November Craftsville will be hosting a showing of Handmade Nation at Nation of Shopkeepers. Handmade Nation is a documentary about the rise of indie crafting in America, and from what I've heard of it, it's a brilliant film. To celebrate the rise of indie crafting in Leeds Craftsville have organised an afternoon of crafty fun, and invited Foldageddon to come along and do some origami. So I'll be hosting a workshop, and for the first time ever, I'll also be selling some origami merchandise!

So come along and join in from 4pm on 14th November. For more information visit Craftsville.
