Event Type: Workshop
Origami workshop for children aged 8 upwards. Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. It is the aesthetic expression of a logical and a spatially intelligent mind. It is a mathematically structured art form, essentially turning a 2 dimensional paper into a 3 dimensional form, with a few folds. It is not directly proportional to age. In fact, children with strong logical and spatial abilities develop this innate capacity to learn complex origami from a very young age. It enhances creativity and is a great stress buster, a great way to increase concentration and focus and has a calming influence on people. It can be used to teach abstract geometric concepts. I am interested in conducting origami workshops for children during the Christmas holidays on the theme of Christmas.
