What is Japanese Origami?
Origami is the art of Japanese paper folding, and its practitioners create complex shapes out of paper without the need for glue or scissors. Though an ancient Japanese art form rooted in tradition, it has overtime evolved into an equally modern handicraft that has influenced current-day technology and science. Combine the old and the new in this dynamic workshop that is fun for all the family.
In this online program, you will be taught how to make origami creations by our nationally-licensed instructors. You will have a variety of shapes (both easy and complex) to choose from but common creations our guests choose include: Mount Fuji, the Japanese crane, samurai shapes, and Japanese ninja stars. As you create, our instructors will tell you all about the fascinating history of this historical art form and its importance within Japanese culture, science and more.
