We booked Sayoko to teach Origami to our local seniors at Mosman Seniors Centre and they absolutely loved the class! Sayoko was a delight, she arrived on time and set up her colourful display and proceeded to engage with the seniors to help them create a ‘heart’ and a ‘star box’. It was a lovely atmosphere of chatting, meeting new people while learning a new skill! Thank you Sayoko!
The workshop was a great choice for a small team. It was a beginner workshop which suited our attendees as no one had done any Origami previously. Sayo was very efficient in both communications and getting very nice materials to use in plenty of time.
On the day Sayo was very positive and constructive as she guided us through making items .
Sayo tailored one item in response to a request which made the session more personalised
If attendees have origami experience recommend discussing with Sayo prior to booking to calibrate difficulty to skill sets.
Thanks Sayo, I enjoyed your teaching and what we made together. My favourite was the horse!
Great introductory workshop on Origami. Booking and communication was efficient and Sayoko tailored an item relevant to our team context. No attendees had much Origami experience before the workshop. The workshop material arrived well in time and instructions sent closer to the date. On the day it was a fun and enjoyable. Sayoko's teaching style is positive and encouraging . If attendees are more experienced in Origami then suggest talking to Sayoko to adapt the workshop for skill levels Thank You - would recommend
Well presented with good range of difficulty. The personalized badger figure was excellent.
Sayo is a lovely teacher and we enjoyed making cure animals :-) Thank you!
Fun team workshop and Sayoko was an excellent teacher!
