Why not get creative with some paper and the art of folding in this Virtual Origami Class? Origami is a traditional Japanese paper folding practice that uses a square sheet of paper to create beautiful shapes.

Japanese origami began sometime after Buddhist monks from China carried paper to Japan during the 6th Century. The first Japanese origami was used for religious ceremonial purposes only, due to the high price of paper. One of the most famous origami designs is the crane. The crane is auspicious in Japanese culture and has become a symbol of peace.

We create several different pieces in this class, such as: One crane, one Masu box with lid (originally used to carry rice), three butterflies (to the design created by the master of origami Akira Yoshizawa), two five-pointed stars and the piece de resistance, a folding lidded box if you’re brave enough.

Is it difficult?

Our Virtual Origami Class include shapes that look beautiful and complex but are actually simple to learn (with clear instructions and a little patience). Your instructor Vanessa has developed techniques to accommodate both small and larger groups whilst keeping the workshops interactive and enjoyable.

The workshops are run at a slowed down pace so that everybody can follow along and have a great experience.

What materials do we need?

For a simple set-up, participants can use materials they probably have at home (A4 paper & Scissors) as well as a pack of Origami Sheets (15cm x 15cm). For a more tailored experience, we can send out carefully curated origami kits, including a range of high-end origami papers.
