Origami (from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”; kami changes to gami due to rendaku) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s.
The goal of thisartis to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. Paper cutting and gluing is usually considered kirigami.
Paper-folding is a wonderful hobby, and a wonderful group activity… and for kids it has so many benefits socially and for the developing mind, but I just love it because you get to make cool stuff – with only a sheet of paper!
It’s incredible to watch an ordinary piece of paper transforming into a three dimensional form, and the more complex the design, the more incredible this process becomes…
