Classroom 3.07 is the immediate left outside of the lift. About Origami Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding and has been shown to promote relaxation, improve memory, patience and hand eye coordination. It is also effective at promoting mindfulness and creative thinking. You will find that origami is fun and relaxing activity that allows you to quieten your mind and allows you to focus, concentrate and be in the present moment. Origami is a relaxing and peaceful hobby, a beautiful art, a craft, a science and a meditation all in one. When you are folding paper, there is stillness, calm and an inner peace. There is something beautiful in turning a plain flat piece of paper into an amazing three dimensional object with just your own hands. It’s one of the simplest art forms in that it just requires a piece of paper and your hands – there’s no need for tools such as pens, brush, inks and paints. I call origami ‘yoga for the mind’ as it allows you to stretch and exercise the creative and artistic areas of your brain that most of us don’t utilise on a day to day basis. Origami is a gender and age neutral activity and something that can be practise anywhere as long as you have a piece of paper. Additional information: Please note that this is a hand on crafting session. The workshop is suitable for complete beginners. Children are welcome to attend but we only recommend the workshop for children over 8 years old. FAQs Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? This workshop is designed to be a parent and child activity. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult during the workshop. This workshop is recommended for children over 8 years old. From our previous experience children less than 8 years will not have the necessary fine motor skills to complete the models.
