Technically Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, the goal of which is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture without cutting or using glue.
But it is not just about folding paper. It is a practice that focuses on training attention and awareness in order to bring mental processes under greater voluntary control and thereby developing capacities such as calmness, clarity and concentration. In one word - ‘Meditation’.
Origami can be described as ‘creating something out of nothing’ while having fun.
This course not only requires but also improves patience, perfection, memory, discipline, geometry and puzzle-solving abilities. It helps understand two and three dimensional geometry principles through a visual/ hands-on approach by unlocking parts of the brain and helps develop precision and hand-eye coordination, which I think is very critical for every student.
Origami is now a topic of rapidly growing interest in the design and engineering research communities due to its potential in a broad range of applications from self-folding to space saving techniques.
The course fees includes material cost for the workshop.
