We bring up to 10 tablets with our origami software and set them up, either at one station, or around the room. The tablets walk guests through each origami with animated step-by-step instructions, while an instructor moves around the room or station, helping as needed.
This is a full-on group lesson. This option has an instructor guiding the whole group through the origami models for up to 20 people.
