Origami for Beginners

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
