Folding Fridays

Fridays at 4:30 pm ET (New York)

Fall Series September 9 – October 28

Appropriate for ages seven and up


Folding Fridays continues in November!  Click here to register.

MoMath continues this runaway hit series, in which learners ages seven through adult create beautiful new models each week.  Every session will be different, and each can stand alone.  Explore the wonders of paper folding — there’s math in every fold!

To participate, you’ll need several sheets of square paper (between 5.5″ and 8.5″ in side length).  Origami paper is preferred (check out the offerings available to ship now from Additions, the shop at MoMath), or you can cut your own squares from any paper.  You may need a few sheets of printer paper, too.

No experience is required.  Origami expert Kathleen Sheridan offers folding to engage origamists at every level!

These are online-only events.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at

Register for individual sessions


“Dachshund” by Yara Yagi is a cute, fun-to-fold model that makes use of pleat folds for the body.


Let’s fold aliens!  These modular cuties have interchangeable heads.  Time allowing, we’ll experiment making our own alien heads.


“Vampire Teeth” by Chrissy Pushkin is an ingenious modular model.  The mouth opens and closes, or it can be used as a box!  Which would you prefer?


“Ghost” by Oriol Esteve is folded with angles and grids, yet the final model looks rounded.  Find out how this is done in class.


Just in time to take flight, let’s fold “Witch” by Isao Kodama.  The cape and cloak are one paper and the face magically locks into place!
