Origami--the art of folding paper to create art--needs precision, patience and practice.

Have you tried origami? Do you or did you enjoy it as a hobby?

Origami is one of those things I enjoy other people doing! I've always loved paper cranes, but I've never been able to make them. In fact, I can't really think of much I can do with origami apart from chatterboxes. But I love when other people give me origami they've made.
I can't fold a shirt, so I'd be useless at origami. I'd get too frustrated to be able to enjoy it.
I have tried it, but sadly not as good as one would hope to be.
It is an Art, and I value it's precision and love the beauty, of something that looks easy,but is far from it.
Just amazing to look at, I went to see some in a Art Gallery, wow!
I enjoy folding things....but I get frustrated when it does not work out. I guess it really helps with building patience. I guess if I am in the right frame of mind I could quite easily attempt it as a hobby.
It is beautiful, except patience is a problem sometimes. It is fun to watch other people who are skilled at it do it.
Sorry guys, Internet connection brought up my answer twice.
I don't think it is the Internet....because a lot of us, have the same problem.

Origami is a great activity to keep older children entertained - we currently have a whole shelf of stunning origami lotus flowers and multi colored ninja stars.

Please share a picture if you can; that sounds awesome.
I love looking at origami creations, but haven't developed the precision for them. It really is an art form which, like everything else, require practice and patience to master.
I have given origami a try and I really enjoyed the experience. There is an origami club which meets once a month in Melbourne and I plan to attend the sessions this year. I often wonder at how origami was invented or discovered and marvel at the human brain as it is able to make 3D shapes out of 2D paper! :)
I only enjoy it if the paper I have available is in exact shapes, aka, I don't have to get the scissors out to edit the size of the sheet, ruins it!
As a student speech pathologist, Origami is my best friend. Although I am not the best at it, it is such a fun activity to do and it gives me the opportunity to bring the crafty side of me to full life! :)
I hated in school when an entire term's art classes were devoted to nothing but origami and we were only allowed to fold the specific thing we were asked to and got into trouble if we deviated from the instructions given in any way. I was bored out of my brain and ended up getting sent out of the classroom in disgrace for attempting to make an albatross instead of yet another paper crane.

As an adult I enjoy doing some simple origami with my daughter. Folding is good for her hand eye coordination and she likes making animals and drawing details on them afterwards.
I would have been upset too!
Art is about finding your own design, as well as maybe what they do.

I run a business propagating and selling very specific plants to attract butterflies into your garden. www.butterflyhostplants.com.au. When I'm running a plant stall. I make lots of Origami butterflies and give them out to the children. If there are enough children about I will give an impromptu lesson on how to make an origami butterfly.
Yes. I love origami. It is calming, and quite enjoyable.
Yes! I have 2 books from when I was a child. I loved it and thought it was so beautiful - but in the '70's that little paper was very expensive (in the '70's everything was deemed very expensive) and so it was metered out very occasionally...One of my kids likes it, the others don't seem to be interested at all...
No I don't like origami.

One year I forgot to buy my mother a present for her birthday. In the morning I thought I'd make a last ditch effort to make her some origami figures. Turns it it's really difficult (or the instructions were terrible) and it meant I got frustrated, cut the paper and used sticky tape. I cheated AND it looked rubbish!
Yes I really enjoy origami - the process and the final product. However, I always don't know what to do with all the final origami creations so I've eventually stopped folding them.
I've never tried it
I've done a lot of crafts, but have never done this one.

Whilst I do like the art of origami, I've never actually tried it my self and I would like to.
I enjoy looking at it, but i've never tried making anything. Far to complicated for me!
