Origami (paper folding) has become an international word!  It is used in a large variety of ways: artistic, functional, and fun.   This workshop focuses on “practical origami” that is useful in your daily life, such as envelopes, boxes with a lid, candy boxes, a nameplate, etc.  Add some creative fun and color to items you use in your everyday life!
