OrigamiTweens, join us for a weekly origami craft on Wednesdays in June where you’ll learn the basics of this Japanese tradition and make your own creations to take home.
 
What is Origami?
Origami is an ancient Japanese paper-folding art form that dates back to the 17th century. This craft became popular in Japan in the mid-1900s and continues to experience immense popularity throughout the world today. When making origami, the goal is to transform a flat sheet of square paper into a finished sculpture such as an animal or flower strictly by folding the paper. When glue or scissors are involved, the craft is then considered to be kirigami. What arguably makes origami such an interesting and distinct art form is that it uses a series of small basic folds that combine to create an intricately crafted final product.
