Origami with Schooling for Life



Had a great time conducting a 2 hour workshop yesterday.




Thanks Denise!  Thanks Jessica!

POP last Sunday

I had to work and arrived for the last hour.  It looked to be a good turnout.  I also learned that Jared Needle's been back in the area since last August.  I did not know this.

2016 is the year of the fold



Why origami is the latest new mindfulness craze:


Next month sees the publication of ‘Zen Doodle Origami’ by Sussex-based author and illustrator Carolyn Scrace. In April, there will be a rush of titles: ‘Colour-Gami: Colour and Fold Your Way to Calm’; ‘The Book of Mindful Origami: Fold Paper, Unfold Your Mind’; and ‘Zen Origami: 20 Modular Forms for Meditation and Calm’. Some of these books come with sheets of origami paper, which you can colour in before folding them into a crane, a lotus flower or a Samurai helmet.

At the Marukai in Gardena, they also sell packets of double-sided/same colors kami for $5.99.  A rare find.
