For Family Saturday in September, the Seattle Japanese Garden is hosting our popular 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 Tateuchi Community Room from 11am – 1pm.
