Origami: maths within the art

Oxfordshire County Library, Queen Street, Westgate, OX1 1DJ

Have you ever made a paper boat or a crane? Origami folds follow mathematical rules to create geometry and dimension from a flat piece of paper. Peter Buchan-Symons is an origami artist who reveals hidden geometry and shows how a little bit of maths can help you create pleasing origami designs.

Suitable for teenagers and adults with some experience in origami.

Peter Buchan-Symons began folding at the age of six and started designing his own origami models shortly afterwards. He is now a full time origami artist and has multiple published books at a range of difficulty levels. He takes private commissions, runs origami workshops, and is a regular contributor to the British Origami Society magazine.
