Origami Groups

OrigamiUSA is the American national origami society. It offers origami resources via their website, magazines, online shop and conventions. Their website has a link to other origami groups, both in U.S. regional and international.

Portland Oregon Paper Shapers (POPS) is the local origami group in Portland, Oregon. All ages, genders and skill levels are welcome to join POPS, and no membership fee. Children under 12 are asked to be accompanied by adults. After a hiatus due to the pandemic, POPS resumed its monthly meetings at Independent Public Resource Center on 1st Sundays, 2-4pm. In addition, POPS resumed its monthly meetings at Tualatin Public Library on 3rd Saturdays, 12-3pm. These schedules may be subject to change so please email POPS at OrigamiPDX@gmail.com in order to join POPS’ newly created Google Group (mailing list service) for updates.

Origami Paper, Books & Kits

Many art/craft/paper supply stores, bookstores, and Asian gift shops carry origami papers, books, and kits. There are also many online stores that carry them. Most origami papers are made in Japan so you will find the largest variety and at the lowest prices in Japan. As far as origami papers that are purchasable in the United States, I like ones from MUJI, Toyo and Tuttle. As for origami books and kits, please find publication reviews on my Reviews page (here).
