Catherine
Director of Sales, YOTEL London (Shoreditch)

We booked an Origami Party to kick off the official launch of YOFEST London Shoreditch.  In addition to the bespoke workshop for hotel guests and our local community, Vanessa created origami flower corsages in our brand colours for guests attending the evening launch party.

From the outset Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with, in terms of response times, flexibility to meet our brief, and inspiring us with her wonderfully creative ideas. The feedback from the participants was 100% positive too, and they appreciated Vanessa’s patience and encouragement.

I have no hesitation in recommending Origami Party and look forward to working with Vanessa on future activities for hotel guests and corporate clients.

Vanessa's session at the Royal Albert Hall staff wellbeing event went brilliantly and engaged people from all levels of the organisation.  Her enthusiasm was infections.

Vanessa also ran an origami session for an Arts networking meeting.  It really added to the event and helped to bring delegates together for a fun and creative experience.

We hired Origami Party London for our Uber Boat by Thames Clippers Community Event in Barking, where we had over 350 guests across the day. Vanessa was fantastic with all of the children (and adults!), teaching guests how to make origami flowers and nautical themed arts and crafts. All of the guests were engaged with Vanessa, who helped every step of the way and went at the pace of each guest, helping them create their own origami to take home. The whole event from start to finish was extremely smooth thanks to Vanessa, and all of our guests were delighted with their creations.

Vanessa provided a wonderful Origami session that all participants thoroughly enjoyed. It was great to do something different from the norm and everyone took the items they made home with such pride! The session was fun but also very relaxing, a great activity after a hard day at work. Vanessa’s regular communication and prompt arrival at our venue was also much appreciated. A great value group activity that everyone can enjoy regardless of artistic talent.

“We have recently had Vanessa in our school to teach us origami.  It was fantastic.  Both the Year 3 and Year 5 students were fully engaged and inspired by the session and continued to make the flowers well into their own time.  Our school has many students with various needs and the origami session stimulated each student for the full hour.  Vanessa you were a massive hit at Moreland.  Thank you!”

Project Manager, Leaping Forward with Dementia, London

Thank you so much for the workshop yesterday. Everyone had a lovely time and were so proud of their beautiful flowers! For me it was also so rewarding to see them having a go at something completely new and succeeding, as well as the peer support they were giving each other. I think you displayed lots of patience and clear instruction which helped the group to settle into the activity.

Vanessa is a wonderful teacher, she showed us clearly and patiently how to make the most beautiful flowers; she encouraged creativity and expression and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session, it was such a positive, fun and relaxing experience - we would not hesitate to recommend Vanessa and we will surely invite her back for another session.

Sarah Haskey,
Daughter’s 9th birthday party

We booked Vanessa for our daughter’s 9th birthday party as we wanted something fun/creative and a little bit different.  To say it was a roaring success is an understatement!  Vanessa was hugely welcoming and knowledgeable and had all 12 of them quietly focussed, choosing their own papers and making THE most gorgeous flowers.  When the 2 hours were up, the girls didn’t want to stop and just kept making and making!! It was a delight to see and I’m sure this is the beginning of a new hobby for many of them!  Thank you Vanessa for the most enjoyable and memorable birthday celebration.

As part of our Summer of Growth wellbeing initiative at Mattel EMEA, we asked Vanessa to come to our UK office to provide an Origami session for our employees. The objective was to offer them a 'new skill' workshop to help develop them professionally and personally. Vanessa was brilliant with our employees, making sure to help each person as much as they needed and to be a constant guide throughout the session. The event was well received by all of the attendees and we couldn’t have done it without Vanessa’s great help and teaching!

Vanessa ran a brilliant origami birthday night for me and 7 friends recently.  We made 3 pieces during the evening and were all proud of our achievements due to Vanessa's excellent coaching! Definitely recommend it for a fun and original night in.

I held my daughter's 10th birthday party at home.  Being Japanese, I wanted to add a Japanese flavour and therefore invited Vanessa to do an origami party.  It was a surprise to me that her skill was as good as origami experts in Japan!  Also, she did well in organizing more than 10 girls to work on challenging tasks. My daughter and her friends had a wonderful experience and I would recommend inviting Vanessa, especially to do a girl's party.

Alex Page,
Student Experience Operations Manager, Pearson College, London

Vanessa provided our students an hour-long workshop on the basics of Origami. She seems to have a natural ability to take complex steps, and simplify them to the point where even the most novice students could easily follow along and create something beautiful in no time whatsoever. The whole experience including the organisation and booking, as well as the session itself, was completely stress-free and easy. We would highly recommend anyone to book Vanessa, and hopefully you can yield as much enjoyment and relaxation as we did!

Vanessa delivered an origami session for us. She was kind, professional and encouraging throughout and came in with a calming presence which was exactly what we needed as part of our busy work lives.  Everyone left having learnt something new and created beautiful origami flowers which are now dotted around the office.

The feedback from the team was super positive! They thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck in and I was impressed that they took the challenge on to not only create a more difficult design but they were willing to go away and teach other members of the team. It was a fantastic session and they have already been asking what they can do next! Thank you Vanessa for your patience and your teaching abilities meant everyone walked away from the session feeling very relaxed.

Vanessa was informative, interesting and engaging with the children and they came away with something so beautiful that they had created.  A fantastic idea for my daughters birthday party.

Vanessa was punctual and arrived early to our event allowing her to be completely set up for the first guests arrival. She was very enthusiastic and engaging with our guests. The sponsors of the origami were very pleased, and this experience engaged a lot of guests to their stand. The results from our event surveys showed the origami experience was one of the guests favourite activities on offer throughout the evening. With experiential events at the fore front of our business we will definitely book Vanessa again for future events.

“I requested Vanessa host an origami class for the three student accommodation sites I manage and it was amazing! I had such great feedback from the students who attended and I also loved taking part myself. Vanessa was such a lovely teacher and showed us how to make the origami in such a kind and relaxing way. The class was thoroughly enjoyed by all and I would love to do it again and learn more!”

We had a fantastic time and loved what we made.  I took mine to show my Mum and she asked if she could keep them so they’re now proudly displayed on her mantle piece!!
