Welcome to OrigaMIT, MIT's origami club. We seek to promote, practice, and teach origami folding, analysis, and design.

Post-Convention Book and T-shirt Sales

Thank you all for an amazing 6th Annual OrigaMIT Convention! The OrigaMIT team had a great time putting this together, and we hope you enjoyed yourselves too. If there is any feedback about things you particularly liked or disliked, please let us know at origami-info@mit.edu so we can make next year's convention even better.

We have books and t-shirts left over from convention and are now opening them up for online sales. Please see the sales page for more details.

This year's 2017 OrigaMIT Convention will be held on Saturday, November 11th, 2017. Please mark your calendars! We will post more information about the convention later in the year.

Weekly Meeting

Our first meeting will be tomorrow! :D We will be folding a variety of roses, from beginner level to more advanced intermediate level, such as the Magic Rose Cube by Valerie Vann, the budding Kawasaki rose, and the new Kawasaki rose! If I can find diagrams/figure out how to teach it maybe we can try the pentagon rose by Naomiki Sato as well, but no guarantees.

Date: Sunday, Sep 10th, 2017
Time: 3pm-5pm
Location: W20-491 (fourth floor of the student center)

Our Sunday meetings are always open and free of charge to everyone, whether or not you are a MIT affiliate. Folders of any experience level are welcome!

As always, paper will be provided with access to our substantial origami library.

14th Annual Student OrigaMIT Competition - Exhibit Gallery

Thank you everyone who submitted your gorgeous artwork for the 14th Annual Student OrigaMIT Competition! The submissions will be displayed for the entire month of April in the Wiesner Student Art Gallery on the second floor of the student center.

Here are the results of the competition. Congratulations to all award-winners!

This year's competition was judged by a panel with incredible combined folding experience and longtime affiliation with the club. Learn more about the judges here.

Menger Sponge Construction

We recently constructed one face of a Level 3 Menger Sponge as part of the MegaMenger project. This sculpture incorporates over 25,000 business cards and was built with the help of over 20 club members.

It is currently on display on the ground floor of the Stata Center. Check it out if you can!

Support Us!

We do our best at OrigaMIT to provide the MIT community with high level Workshops and Lectures free of charge. Much of our funding comes from the MIT Undergraduate Association, but this funding is only supposed to be used to fund the activities of current MIT students, and generally not enough to cover the expenses related to events open to the general public.

If you enjoy our events and would like to support OrigaMIT through a donation, you can do so online through MIT Give, or by sending a check made out to OrigaMIT - MIT to:
