Step-by-step instructions

You can learn origami on the internet.  You can learn how to make monsters, dragons, creatures, shapes.
You can get beautifully illustrated, step-by-step guides to making beautiful complex creations out of paper.
But what is really fun is having someone who is made one many times before teach you.  No youtube tutorials, just a friendly person, taking time to teach you, step by step. And a little scotch tape doesn't go amiss.
