The OSN website: new and improved

Due to a server crash the OSN website has been offline for a while. The OSN board saw in this sad event the opportunity to change and improve the website. Currently not all functionality will be available, but that will come over time. Please check back regularly, more information will be added soon.

Although there are still intentions to make most of the website bilingual, most of the available content is currently in Dutch only. Please switch languages and check out what's already online.

We would appreciate it if you could leave a comment.

Origami Society Netherlands

Who and what is the OSN?

The Dutch Origami Society was founded on the 1st of December 1983. Since that time the society has operated under the name Origami Sociëteit Nederland, abbrevated to OSN. The OSN is a very active society that gathers admiration from over the borders of our country. The Nippon Origami Association (NOA) calls us 'unique in the world'. Praise indeed. We're proud of that. 'We', meaning our many members. Many members are working for the OSN.
Let's start at the top.


Vouwdag In het hele land worden er talrijke vouwactiviteiten georganiseerd door Origamidocenten (voorheen OAC-ers). Zo vinden er met enige regelmaat vouwochtenden, -middagen en -avonden plaats, waaraan men kan deelnemen.
Over het algemeen zijn deze bijeenkomsten alleen in de winterperiode. In de meeste gevallen is er een zomerstop van mei of juni tot september. Hieronder vindt u het overzicht.


De OSN heeft diverse creatieve leden die een boekje met eigen ontworpen modellen hebben uitgebracht. In de onderstaande lijst vindt u alle boekjes die in eigen beheer zijn uitgegeven en nog steeds verkrijgbaar zijn.

Hebt u ook zo'n boekje uitgegeven en staat het niet in de lijst, geef het dan door aan de webmaster, zodat het erbij gezet kan worden.
