Important preparation for the online workshop

Please prepare 1) ten or more origami sheets of approximately 150 to 200 mm (6" to 8") square, see note below, for each participant, 2) a pair of scissors, 3) bamboo skewers or toothpicks, 4) a flat surface such as a table or desk, 5) your hands, fingers and nails washed and dried for the work, and 6) online communication facilities for ZOOM (please download its free application).

Note: Origami sheets may be available on an online sale, but if not, you can cut square sheets from regular size sheets of paper such as A4, letter size, or legal size without using special tools, see the second photo at the top of this page. You can also cut out your own origami sheets from wrapping paper and/or any other color or patterned paper. For multiple sheets, it is recommended to arrange a precisely cut cardboard template by using a set square/triangle, ruler, and utility knife, see the third photo.

One hour Origami workshop

The online workshop will start with a simple model, and proceed to more complicated and/or difficult ones following a program which will be discussed and agreed by both of us previously via the message box. You will enjoy your first Origami works, and complete several cute models by yourself.

You will have some very basic Japanese words and phrases which make your "real" tour to Japan more fruitful through the workshop too.

After the workshop, you will receive original Origami recipes for the models you have made during the workshop for your review. Make more Origami works recalling the workshop to improve your technique and to prepare for the second step.
