🇯🇵 About the Mindful Origami Workshop


Learn to unfold your mind while making beautiful origami models, guided by Samuel Tsang, an experienced crafts trainer and author of two books on the art of origami. Bring calm into your life by learning the mindful practice of folding paper.


This is an instructor-lead, hands-on crafting session. You will be able to follow the trainer’s step-by-step instructions live and at the same time view the demonstration enlarged on a projector screen. While you will also be provided with all the materials needed, you are also welcome to use your own paper if you prefer. During this class we will be learning to fold origami crane designs.

🙋🏻‍♂️ About the Trainer

This workshop will be led by the author of  books “The Book of Mindful Origami” and “The Magic of Mindful Origami”, Samuel Tsang. He has been teaching the art of “mindfoldness” professionally since 2003. Over the years he has introduced origami to thousands of students in corporate team building and public workshops in London and Amsterdam.


Sam has worked with over 100 companies including some of the world’s top internet and luxury good brands. He specialises in making beautiful bespoke origami first anniversary bouquets out of paper and undertakes commissions from private individuals and businesses. He was the main organiser for the Guinness World Record for the largest display of origami elephants that is permanently displayed at the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in the United Kingdom.


He has been folding origami since a child and the turtle, the model that he has created as the first one remains his all-time favourite. Sam’s passion for origami blends into his family life as he created multiple models representing members of his family. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Amsterdam in a house full of origami.



🔰 Programme:

A Sunday afternoon is a perfect time to practice some “mindfoldness”.

The workshop will take 1,5 hours starting at 15:15 sharp.
