My Origami Lessons

On this page you can see all my Origami lessons. Here you will find either short blitz-lessons with crafts for different holidays or detailed video lessons that open up the secrets of making complicated paper models. Origami is suitable for children, for adults and even for old people. This art develops and calms people down, as well as entertains and inspires them. We try to make Origami lessons understandable for everyone. They will tell about Origami basics and masters' secrets in an available language. The list of my lessons will be growing up with me.

  • Hello, Valeria. I like your crafts very much. They are simple, but gorgeous!
    Good luck to you! 🙂

  • Hello, Valeria! You have very beautiful models. I can’t believe, that they’re possible to be made from paper! Go on!

  • Hello, Valeria! Your blog is a wonderful example of manifestation of abilities of many other talented children. I think for the adults it will be very useful “column of parents.” Thank you for your work. Continue to create joy and be successful!

  • Hello, Natasha and Igor. It’s perfect, that you’ve made this site for Valerie. I am a psychologist, I have long worked in the school. And I think that your gift for daughter – is just the way for her bright future. She is lucky to have such wise and supportive parents. I wish you always understand your children. After all, happiness – is when you are understand.

    • Thank you, Tatiana! I have a counter proposal: from time to time we want to talk here small histories of the lives of our children, their growth, the relationship between themselves and their peers. In this connection, readers of the blog will be very glad to hear the comments of the psychologist, an experienced teacher. I invite you to be a frequent visitor to the blog Valeria, if possible, to acquaint the readers of the blog with their opinions on a particular issue, to initiate the consideration of new themes. In my opinion these are the “small incidents of life” and are able to demonstrate the effectiveness of the behavior of children and parents, and, as a result, form the personality of the child.

  • Yes, I’m happy, thanks for the reply. While I can comment about Origami and dance, which Valeria is interested in. My thesis on the dominants in the upbringing of the child and their relationship with development. The results showed that at the age of 5 to 10 years to is main aesthetic dominant, when the child draws, dances, doing crafts, playing in the theater, trying different sports. This forms the emotional intelligence. At the age of 10 to 14 – dominant – communication with peers. It is necessary to create conditions for secure communication with peers, provide the ability to perform group projects, conduct social psychological training, joint campaigns, events. This helps to generate status in a group, a sense of acceptance, develop communication skills, tolerance and self-confidence. And only starting from 14 years old to be the dominant intellectual, that is reinforced by studies, school, tutoring, training in high school or something.
     The experimental group that studied the program dominants, showed better results not only in personal but also in intellectual development in academic achievement than children enrolled in the program Zankova. All children enrolled in high school for free. They are also more friendly, happy and motivated.
     Very often in the school everything is upside down – in elementary school children charged with logical problems and equations than discourage all desire to learn. Because this program does not meet the level of development of cognitive functions. At the elementary school children and specific creative thinking rather than abstract. The logic is formed to 12-13 years. A pedaling and advanced development only leads to underdevelopment of imaginative and emotional sphere with all the consequences. One hope for parents who will correct these distortions. So origami lesson and dancing – just what the doctor ordered. It develops the emotional sphere, and creates a platform for self-regulation in the relationship with peers during adolescence.
    And the creation of a site for girls – it’s a real transition to the second dominant – communication, it has the ability to help people, and see what you mean something on a global scale. See – you’re in Europe, and I’m in America, and Valery influence, and positive to me. I already want to try origami on her lessons. She is so small, and is already changing the world for the better. And she did not become conceited face with such wise parents.
    And I look at you and also want to create an interactive website itself. While I have a static site centretd.narod. ru. And it’s a little outdated, I’m not in Apatity.

  • Hello, Valery!
    Such bright and unusual work you’ve made! Handsomely.
    I really liked the Snowman and the Kusudama. But I do not know what is Kusudama. Perhaps the name of the flowers? Could you explain?
    Good luck to you and good mood.

    • Of course, Nadezhda! Kusudama – is one of my favorite craft, I have them at home a lot and they all are different. Kusudama – a “ball that heals”, they are often used as an amulet against disease. You need to hang Kusudama in the room and it will protect you from the bad. Perhaps it’s because Kusudama descended from flowers that make up the ancient herbal. So you are almost right!

  • Hello Valeria!
    I am delighted with your works.
    These are works of art. I’m sure that my girls will be interested in it. At what age did you start?

    • Thank you! It is Origami. Just start with the most simple models: Boat, Frog, Tulip. When you see what happens, add new crafts. I started at five years. Now I make Origami with my grandmother, who is ’82. Origami is suitable for all age groups.

  • Hey Lera!
    You have great works for your age, I was so like you, I would have been by no means all of it: grin:

    Good luck to you and to your the parents.

  • Thank you, Dmitriy. I want to develop further, too. Now I’m trying to put figures on the patterns – is not very easy: sad:. And do you use patterns?

    • Good afternoon!
      Yes, I’m trying to learn patterns. While I advance in technology Box Pleated (when the square is divided vertically and horizontally for a certain number of lines: 32, 48 itd .. And then deposited mountains and valleys at an angle of 45 degrees under the mantle of the cells).
