Origami Workshop for Beginners

What you'll learn

Learn the ancient tradition of Origami with our handcraft short courses in Sydney!

Immerse yourself in the delicate Japanese art of paper folding and discover the therapeutic benefits of origami in our Origami Workshop. You'll learn about the history and cultural significance of origami, and create your own origami objects to take home with you.

Beyond the artistry, origami offers a meditative experience, promoting mindfulness by engaging in a creative, non-judgmental practice that encourages self-expression, cultivates patience and concentration, and provides a calming focus on the present moment. 

In this engaging and hands-on workshop, you'll master the art of origami, beginning with the basic folds and gracefully progressing to more intricate techniques. Our experienced tutor will guide you through each fold as you craft an array of captivating paper creations.

You'll create your own paper treasures, including a jewellery box made from Japanese paper, as well as a unique greeting card featuring origami artwork.

Join us to create while finding your inner Zen, one fold at a time!
