February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Workshop Details

Thanks for your interest. Registration for this workshop is now closed. Should you have any questions, please reach out to marketing@folklorama.ca

Learn the ancient art of paper folding with origami master, Brian Cox! In Japan, references to origami date back to the 1600s, when poems referenced celebratory events with gifts of paper models. The paper models were attached to gifts, much like greeting cards are today. Since then, origami has developed into a world of creativity, right at our finger tips. If you’re a beginner or intermediate looking for a unique experience, join Brian Cox as he teaches the ins and outs of the art of origami! A free of charge kit, available only to residents of Manitoba, containing everything you need to participate in the class will be sent to you upon registration. Only 150 kits are available.

The kit includes:

  • Origami paper
  • Instructions
  • A surprise

Please Note: This is an online workshop. You will be emailed a link before the event. Requires a computer, laptop or mobile device with audio.
