Free First Thursday: Origami in the Garden

For Free First Thursday in July, the Seattle Japanese Garden is hosting Origami in the Garden in the Tateuchi Community Room. The roots of Ori (折り, folding) Gami (紙=kami, paper) originates in the 6th century in Japan. Use of paper was limited only to formal ceremonies and rituals and was not commonly available for recreational paper folding until the 17th century. Today, origami is enjoyed around the world and continues to evolve its art form.

Please join us for Origami in the Garden and experience the joy of paper folding!

Papers and instructions will be available for all visitors in the community room 5pm – 7pm. Entry to the garden will be FREE from 3PM until closing. Refreshments provided.

On The Walls: The Roosevelt High School Student Photo Exhibit will be displayed On The Walls in the Tateuchi Community Room through the month of August.
