PBS Origami

I’m Peter Buchan-Symons, an origami designer and artist living in Oxford, UK. Thank you for visiting my website, PBS Origami.

I’ve been folding paper for over 20 years, and many of my designs have been published in books and magazines. You can fold some of my models by following the step-by-step diagrams in the Instructions section of this website.

If I’m not folding paper, I’m probably overanalysing my next move in a board game, volunteering at church, or pulling a harmless, environmentally-friendly prank on my unsuspecting housemates.

If you have any comments or suggestions for this website please contact me – I would love to hear from you, and all feedback is valuable.

Since starting my own small business, I’ve been amazed at the number of kind people who have been so generous with their time and helping to promote me, and have also asked how they can help support me. If you would like to make a monetary contribution, my preference would be that you buy one of my books so that you can get something in return. However, if you really are happy to donate freely, then you can use the options below. Feel free to enter your own amount and thank you so much for your generosity!
