What’s it all about?
Origami is the art of paper folding, deriving from Japanese words ori (folding) and kami (paper). Join us and learn how to make the most traditional shape: the crane as well as fun lucky stars. After we have learnt how to fold them we’ll design our own mobile with twigs or branches and get lots of tips and tricks to make your mobile pop.
