About 240 participants from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Poland, Italy, the Netherlands, the USA and Venezuela came to enjoy a fantastic weekend with various workshops, long folding nights, a great origami exhibition, a model competition and much more. Many thanks to our special guests Melina Hermsen (Germany), Krystyna Burczyk (Poland) and Bernie Peyton (USA) for joining us and hosting such amazing workshops.
