Experience the beauty and challenge of origami at our Discover Origami presentation and workshop with guest OrigamiUSA folders Sy Chen, Jim Weir, and Giang Dinh!

Offered as part of our Fall 2015 exhibition, World Origami Days, a brief presentation will introduce non-traditional, contemporary styles of origami, exploring topics from technique to artistic challenges. There will be a short question and answer session following the lecture.

Afterwards, guests of all ages are invited to try their hands at the art of paperfolding through our origami workshop led by our experienced OrigamiUSA folders. There will also be a chance to view our new origami exhibition, presented in cooperation with OrigamiUSA and the Embassy of Australia, featuring impressive and creative works by Ms. Hiromi Ashlin, our guest folders, and other members of the OrigamiUSA community. The exhibition will run from October 26 until December 28, and will be open to the public during regular JICC hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Join us and discover the vast world of origami!
