Family Craft Activity: Fun with Origami

Join Carolyn Woody of Lunarcat Studios and make your own origami to take home!

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. Ori means to fold and kami means paper, together they form the word, "origami." It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding them in animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks.

This activity and the materials are free with Lan Su membership or admission; no registration is required.
