Description

There is a common folk belief that folding papers helps to purify yourself and the paper. Originally, origami (paper folding) started because the Buddhist monks brought paper to Japan and incorporated it into religious ceremonies, but since the Edo period paper became easy to acquire and popular and origami became a common past-time. The art is so popular, that it is a part of early education in Japan. Mastery of the delicate art is perhaps one reason why the Japanese are so skilled with their hands! In this experience, we will make boxes, animals and flowers from a single piece of origami. It will be like magic! Step-by-step, let us fold origami together! Schedule: 1. Learn basic of origami 2. Warm up with easy pieces 3. Create more difficult sculptures
