I've been coming to the Van Nuys Garden for well over a decade, first hired by Michael Fritzen, I believe. at some point, Sylvia Wong took over the reigns and brought aboard more regular teachers at the annual Origami Day festival. This year, Carla Shaw has taken the helm.
Instead of just entertaining visitors, this year I had the freedom to also teach; and I got to be in the Tea House, which I ended up liking better.
I entrusted filming to one of the volunteers; but something happened and she missed recording some really good moments. Oh, well.
It was a fun 5 hours of origami (not counting the 2.5 hours before and hour after).
