Foldageddon is BACK!

In 2011 Foldageddon went quiet. We didn't go away, we just snuck under the radar and spent our time touring festivals, teaching kids and folding cranes. So many cranes.

Now it's 2012 and we're BACK, bigger and better than ever and in a new home.

We're very proud to announce that the next Foldageddon will be held on 1st February at The White Swan on Swan Street in the city centre (just next door to City Varieties) from 7pm. We'll then continue every month, on the first Wednesday at The White Swan.

Workshops will consist of informal fold-along demonstrations of simple models, then opportunity to practise and ask questions. The workshops will be free, and all materials will be provided. Just turn up, look for the people with paper and come and say hello!

Foldageddon: Folding For Peace

Foldageddon is back!

The next meeting will be on 7th February at 6pm. Tickets are free, but limited, and are available here.

We’ll be folding Valentine’s specials, but don’t worry if you don’t have a sweetheart, there’ll also be a practical model and it will all be good folding fun!

We’ll also be folding cranes after the meeting for Folding For Peace; and there will be exciting news about future Foldageddons as well.

Hope to see you there!

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.

New blog

Welcome to the new blog! As my Light Night project is over, it seemed sensible to set up a dedicated Foldageddon blog, for all the Foldageddon events that are going on, and exciting Foldageddon news.
