Origami: Friday Folding (June)
Friday, Jun. 16, 2017 – Friday, Jun. 16, 2017
11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Ease into your weekend with the peaceful art of origami. Each Friday’s lesson will focus on a different technique as we create fun-to-fold and elegant origami models. No previous experience is necessary, but attention to detail is important. This meditative practice — part geometry, part Zen — will bring focus to your day and help create new neural pathways.
June 16: Dragonfly study; July 21: Offering container and lotus; August 18: Butterfly study
