Whether you’re looking to sharpen your skills or learn a new craft, all are welcome to this evening of creation.
Origami is an ancient art form dating back hundreds of years. Although it is widely believed that origami originated in Japan, some historians assert that it originated in China. The name origami combines two Japanese words, ora, meaning to fold, and kami, which means paper. In addition to visually stunning creations, origami holds significant meaning and symbolism. For example, the cranes you will create in this workshop symbolize hope and healing during trouble. What started as a cultural creation quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, still beloved by thousands today. If you’re looking for an introduction to this foldable fun, Artworks has all the tools you need to get started.
