Origami in Karmoni

‘Origami’ is a Japanese word formed from ‘ori’ meaning ‘folding’ and ‘gami’ meaning ‘paper’ – the Japanese art of paper folding. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques without cuts, glue, or markings on the paper. The small number of basic origami folds can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. The usual way to begin is with a square sheet of paper which may be of different colours, prints & patterns.

One of our supporters kindly donated illustrated Origami instruction books & work materials to Elsa Primary School (which is located in Karmoni Village). All students were taught how to origami and they very much enjoyed this craft experience.
