Origami with Ella DeBakker (Ages 7-10)
Origami (折り紙, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku)) is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques.
Ella has had a love of arts and crafts since childhood, and when she discovered origami, she was intrigued by the transformation of a piece of paper by just some folding. She enjoys making decorative pieces. All supplies will be provided. More details to follow.
