The art of origami can be intimidating, especially without help from someone proficient and skilled. But finding a teacher can be difficult, and learning from diagrams simply doesn't suit everyone. With Origami Studio, world-renowned origami artist Michael G. LaFosse takes you by the hand and, using a DVD along with "lesson plans", will get you from basic knowledge and skills to the intermediate level.

Each of the 30 carefully crafted lessons build on the previous ones, allowing your repertoire to grow exponentially as you progress. In no time you'll be ready to tackle the more challenging models that you've been hoping to try, and your friends will be begging you for lessons!
