If you have felt like youtube videos don't give you enough guidance in folding Origami, I would be delighted to take you step by step taking things at your pace and level as we explore the craft of Origami together.

I was born in Japan and origami was something that came naturally to me as a child. The love of Origami was passed down to me from my Japanese Grandmother who decorated her room with all of her paper creations.

It's been in my blood and comes as second nature to me however I know how complex some of these folds can be and my goal as a teacher is to help anyone be able to fold anything, while throwing in stories from Japan and Origami trivia!

Please feel free to Ask me questions about my workshop pricing, I tend to have to charge more for these than my private lessons because of the way take lessons lesson packages are structured but if you have a limited budget please let me know in your message and I will do my best to accommodate if possible.

Kat is an amazing teacher! Not only does she have a beautiful voice and attitude towards life, she is so knowledgeable about the art of singing. She always finds creative and supportive ways to ensure that I am comfortable to sing. I am excited for my lesson every week and always learn something new.

Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! Very knowledgeable and caring! I am so happy! I’m buying a lot more lessons! Hassan is the best!!!!

Hasaan is a very patient teacher--which is definitely a requirement for online sewing/pattern making lessons. We worked on my bodice sloper, and he was able to quickly identify the fitting issues I had. He shares best practices, tips, and terminology all throughout the lesson so that you learn as much as possible. Will continue with him.
Lauren Stein
I had a tight time schedule to finish a summer project before I went in for surgery and Hasaan was very sensitive to that. He was able to teach me new skills in pattern making and cutting that made the process easier/ more accurate as well as sewing techniques. I would say my experience with him was very positive and he was always cheerful and and in a great mood and helped me out a lot with my project. I would definitely recommend using him for lessons.

"I have been taking lessons from Dipankar for five weeks. My game has already shown improvement. When I started my rating was 1050, now I am at 1250. That is a significant improvement. His lessons are engaging and he provides a lot of feedback. I recently won a difficult game using the tactics and pointers he provided in a recent lesson. I was elated. I recognized the advancement in my game. This coupled with Dipankar's tutelage continues to encourage me to strive for my goal of attaining a 2300 rating. I look forward to see what else I can achieve under his guidance."
