Origami Workshop

Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a given result using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper medium. "Origami" refers to all types of paper folding, even those of non-Asian origin.

Origami only uses a small number of different folds, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. In general, these designs begin with a square sheet of paper whose sides may be different colors.

We are proud to have an Origami Workshop at QUARK '08 which will help in spreading the knowledge imparted by such a workshop. The workshop is conducted by a hobbyist group which is coming to take the workshop allover from Pune.

The Workshop will be conducted in four sessions spread over two days. Each session will last 2 hours each.

  • Session 1:
    • Introduction to Origami
    • Getting to know some the symbols and signs used in instruction diagrams

The Workshop will be followed by an Exhibition of the models made by the participants during the workshop. The Exhibition will also contain models created by the instructors themselves, in QUARK '08 and before that.

"Our aim in conducting this workshop is introducing the art of origami and creating interest in the same."
