Introduction to Origami

Did you know that origami came from the Japanese words “Oru” meaning “to fold” and “kami” meaning “paper”? And that’s exactly what we do here – fold paper!

There’s nothing quite like the joy you get from transforming a plain square piece of paper into a container, animal, flower, etc.

It still puts a smile on our faces when we complete an origami!

Origami is fun, easy, inexpensive and great for sharing with others.  This is an activity that has been passed on from one generation to another, despite huge technological advances.

Let’s make sure that it will continue on for many generations to come.
