“Butterfly” Design by Akira Yoshizawa | Folded by Justin Fossum


Workshop: Origami

Bring that coffee shop conversation and your coffee friends – to RE:Create and see what happens when you explore creativity together.

In this session, Justin Fossum instructs on creating origami.  This is a FREE event presented by ArtCentral Spearfish. All materials are included. Recommended for ages 10 and up. Sign-ups are requested to make sure we have enough materials.

Justin Fossum shares his passion for origami and helps participants create their own origami work of art. Participants will learn about the history of origami, see what is possible with paper folding today, and then begin folding their own origami project — an origami butterfly designed by Akira Yoshizawa, the father of modern origami.

The workshop takes place in the ArtCentral RE:create makerspace in The Matthews’ art gallery.
