Origami Workshop

Origami Workshop. Monday, September 26th from 4:00 PM until 5:00 PM in the auditorium. Nanaka Okamura, a Japan Outreach Initiative (JOI) Coordinator will lead this workshop. Nanaka came to the US last July and has been teaching Japanese culture (such as Japanese
Calligraphy, origami, seasonal events, manner, etc.) and the Japanese language to people in the community here in Western North Carolina. Look for more events at your Marianna Black Library this year. THINK OF ORIGAMI AS A BRAIN EXERCISE! Origami has several brain-enhancing effects, including improving motor skills and developing concentration. When children follow directions to fold paper, both the motor and visual areas of the brain are activated. Using both the right and left hemispheres at the same time is essential for proper development, and not only stimulates the brain but also develops imagination and memory. In addition to these wonderful brain benefits, keep in mind that origami is also "FUN!" In this 60-minute workshop, make the tallest mountain in Japan, Mt. Fuji, or complete one piece of artwork together by making one part per person! All Ages welcome with No registration required.
