Origami convention 2017


 Mennorode, 21 - 22 - 23 april 2017

The weekend committee has reviewed the weekend and given the positive feedback from many guests, we may conclude that it has been a successful weekend. The Mennorode Commission is already busy for the next edition.

We invite you to sign up for the 29th weekend of the Origami Society Netherlands. We are present for the 14th time in Mennorode, Elspeet.


As you know, Mennorode has a limited number of single rooms and more double rooms available. For the rooms is the rule: first come, first served. The Friday Package prevails before Saturday package. Once the single rooms are full you will be given a double room with someone else. Always after agreement with you!  Refund follows afterwards. This year we maintain the prices of 2016. We do not know yet if Mennorode is going to increase their prices but it has no consequences.

Friday package:
Included: 2 nights, 2x breakfast, 2x lunch, 2x dinner, coffee/tea at regular intervals and 3 free workshops. Arrival before 18.00h (dinner time). You are welcome from 16.00h.

  • Single room (VRD1):  € 240,00 per person.
  • Double room (VRD2): € 230,00 per person. 

Saturday package:
Included: 1 night, 1 dinner, 1 breakfast, 2x lunch coffee/tea at regular intervals and 3 free workshops. Arrival before 11.00h Saturday morning.

  • Single room (ZAD1): € 180,00 per person. 
  • Double room (ZAD2): € 170,00 per person.

At other times than above drinks, coffee and tea are for your own account.

Exhibition and paper

We also have an exhibition. It would be nice if, like last weekend, a lot of people get involved, so that others may enjoy what we all like to make. Also, the various paper suppliers agreed to come, so that there is an opportunity for your paper replenishment.  Who this weekend will be our foreign guest will remain a surprise. You can read more about in the next Orison.
