Are you interested in paper crafts? Have you ever wondered how to make a beautiful sculpture out of one square of paper? Don’t know your Mountain fold from your Valley fold? Then look no further, this Introduction to Origami workshop is for you!
Origami is the art of paper folding, often associated with the Japanese culture, which creates different sculptures and models from a single square of paper. It is a great way to develop patience, concentration and spatial reasoning, as well as being therapeutic, fun and giving you a great sense of achievement!
During this 3 hour workshop, tutor Gillian will lead you through the basic folds of origami and introduce you to 3 designs, including the well-known Japanese paper crane. You will then be able to create your own origami arrangement, using a number of techniques to display your models.
All tools, materials and tuition will be provided for you to create your own piece to display and show off to friends and family!
