Welcome to the Zaragozan Group of Paperfolding WebPage

We are a group of creators and folders of paper figures. We are called “Grupo Zaragozano de Papiroflexia” because most of us live in Zaragoza (Spain) and because we feel that we have inherited from the historic group of paper folders which was so called during the fifties and sixties in the last century. However, in this globalized XXI century the group has members coming from Aragón, the rest of Spain and the world.

We invite you to browse our site and to know our work and activities. And if you are in Zaragoza and you like origami, you can visit us. We meet at a café called “Levante” (calle Almagro and María Agustín, near Puerta del Carmen), every first and third Monday from 20 to 22. Anyway, if by any chance we are not there, you can see some of the figures we have folded in a showcase near the entrance of the café.


El Último Vals

goyo writes "Hoy la figura que quiero mostrar es The Last Waltz de Neal Elias. Desde la primera vez que la ví entraron ganas de doblarla hasta que hoy fue ese gran día, como siempre en compañia que es como mejor se dobla. Una figura que empieza con un rectangulo de 1X3. Aunque luego hay que modificar las proporciones para que quede un 3X23.

Preparation of aluminium and tissue paper

goyo writes "Every figure needs its paper. Every folder selects the type of paper which best fits the figure that he is going to fold. As a project for the exhibition I was asked to fold a number of dragons. The model I have chosen is the one by Hojyo Takashi. For this dragon I will use a combination of aluminium foil (the one we use for the oven) and tissue paper (regular colour napkins).
The tissue paper is difficult to fold because the folds do not hold. They tend to disappear and there are no clear traces of them.
The aluminium foil behaves in exactly the opposite way; once a fold is made it stays forever.
I think I have to mention here a young Spanish folder who uses aluminium to make his beautiful works of art in a completely new style: Victor Coerlouoy

Envío de figuras a los Príncipes de Asturias
Temas generales del grupo

flexiball writes "
These are the figures sent on Tuesday , October the 21st to the Princes of Asturias.

The box contained short stories, modulars, rings, earrings, toys, dwarfs, swans, flowers, ...

This is a small sample of figures that can help to understand the variety that exists nowadays in the world of paperfolding.
We hope it will be appreciated in the Royal House. We would love the Princes and their daughters to get into paperfolding. That's why we included some short stories that the princes Leonor can read and some paper earrings that both the princess and her daughters can wear.

La Princesa Letizia con el Flexiball
Temas generales del grupo

flexiball writes "
On Thursday, 8th September 2008 the Princes of Asturias visited the Expo of Zaragoza. They went pass the COE (Operations Centre of the Expo), the place where I work and where I have installed a mini exhibition of origami. Her Royal Highness the Princess Letizia looked interested in a swan made with 
Chinese modules, so I approached her and showed her how the modules were folded.
The Princes, together with the president of Aragón, Marcelino Iglesias, and the president of the Expo, Roque Grau, congratulated me for the models that they saw in this mini exhibition.

As a souvenir of this visit I gave the Princess Letizia one of the most famous of my models: the flexiball, which she carried in her hands for the rest of the visit as you can see in the picture.

The meeting at the Lighthouse was much better than we expected. There is room for 150 people and the place was full. What's more, the corridors were also full of people who stopped to watch our mates folding their models.
Luis Fernando was in charge of doing the talking while Carlos, Felipe and José Angel showed their magic.

Our mate Carlos Pomarón has given us a cutting from a 1982 newspaper. In this clipping, which appeared 26 years ago, the Zaragozan Group of Paperfolding is mentioned. If you continue reading (see complete text below), you’ll see that the history of the group is far from recent, but we keep on maintaining traditions such as meeting on Mondays at the bar “Levante”, though the frequency of such meetings has varied.
“Paperfolding, a hobby that goes from ability to art”

I want to seize the opportunity to thank all the people who have at any time been part of this mythical group and have contributed to keep it alive.

La pasada semana pudimos gozar de la visita de la gran Paula Versnick y de su simpatico acompañante Gerard, que habian venido a Zaragoza a visitar la EXPO y tambien a ver Huesca y  todo lo relacionado con las pajaritas que hubiese alli, como las pajaritas de Ramon Acin que hay en el parque. Estuvimos cenando con ellos la noche del 15 en restaurante chino, 'el chino de siempre', y nos obsequiaron a cada uno de nosotros con una cajta de papel diseñada por Paula para la ocasion, llamada "Zaragoza Box", que tenia en el interior un cortador, un souvenir holanes y el CP de la cajita. Tambien nos dedico su libro sobre origami en Holanda.

Al dia siguiente era lunes de reunion en el Cafe Levante, y despues de haber pasado el dia en la expo, vinieron ala reunion y plegaron con nosotros. Aqui una foto de la reunion.

Un saludo desde a Paula y Gerard.
