"Join us for this storytelling session that will walk participants through the many steps required to create a work of origami in the form of a story. Origami, which is more popularly known as a traditional Japanese art, actually originated in China, according to instructor Shrikant Iyer. Historically, origami was an exclusive art reserved for wealthy individuals who could afford the cost of paper. Japanese Samurai, for example, would often exchange gifts of origami as expressions of good luck by folding a piece of dried meat or fish into the sculpture. The art of paper folding is no longer restricted by traditional bounds, and it now employs a wide array of materials and textures for more innovative creations."
