Happy New Year, UTFOLDers! We hope you had a restful winter break and are recharged for the upcoming semester! Before school restarts, be sure to catch the first event in UTFOLD’s Oritalkers workshop series!
One of the coolest aspects of hosting virtual events is that we can collaborate on an international scale with talented origamists around the globe! The first speaker, Nicolas Terry, will be teaching a workshop this Saturday! Although Oritalkers workshops cater to art-savvy U of T students, the speakers are also well-versed in business and entrepreneurship.
📆 1/9/21 11:00-11:30 AM EST is the workshop with Nicolas Terry.
Nicolas Terry is the author of 5 origami books and several origami kits. On top of designing 100+ models, he publishes the work of new and renowned folders. On good terms with Robert Lang, Michael G. LaFosse, Shuki Kato, Chen Xiao, Román Díaz, and a plethora of other inventive minds, Terry played a major role in the globalization of origami. He is also co-leader of several origami events such as the Convention for Creator, Eric Joisel Origami Awards, Origami Marathon and the Ultimate Origami Convention. He is the owner of Origami-shop, the world’s largest online vendor of origami paper. As a speaker, Terry would offer unique insight on the business, communication, and materials science aspects of origami.
We will be meeting in the ‘workshop’ voice channel of the UTFOLD Discord server. Not everyone will finish folding in the span of 30 minutes, so the UTFOLD Execs will stay until 12:30 PM to help answer questions about the final steps. We hope to see you there!
