I revamped my Tinygami website a bit ago and included this at the bottom of the Home page:
WEST MICHIGAN ORIGAMI FOLDING CLUB
In spring of 2017 I am going to start a West Michigan Origami Folding Club. It will meet monthly and be an informal group session where folders can gather to work on current projects and share (ideas, tips, instructions, paper, paper sources, etc.) as well as mentor new folders into the art of origami. If you are interested in joining please sign up on the contact page for future updates.
This is what my website contact page looks like. If you click the box that says “West MI “Origami Folding Club – Coming Spring 2017 Updates” I will send you an email as soon as I’ve figured out where the meetings will be hosted. I may also send you one other message asking you to share input on how the club can best serve your interests and needs.
I’m leaning towards finding a space between Grand Rapids (where a lot of people live) and Greenville (where I live). I’m thinking somewhere in or near Lowell, a nice halfway point between both locations. My priorities in choosing a venue are:
- A large enough venue
- No or low cost to participate
- Free Parking
- Easy access for people coming from both directions
If you’re interested in joining please feel free to add suggestions in the “Message” box at the bottom of the contact page. Once I have a venue and date for our first meet up I’ll send an email out and let you know.
At this point I have no idea what to expect. Will I be folding alone? Will anyone come? I think they will, there are already a LOT of talented folders in West Michigan and many visitors at ArtPrize have expressed an interest in learning so I think a club will be a lot of fun.
I hope you’ll join me!
