Decorative Origami

with Sarah Pain

Suitable for children aged 7 – 12

The Workshop

Discover the mindful Japanese art of origami which has been in practice since the 17th century and experiment with decorative marks inspired by the colours and forms in the exhibition Shoji Hamada: A Japanese Potter in Ditchling.

After visiting the exhibition and doing some colourful sketches of your ideas, you will decorate origami paper with your final designs and create a myriad of decorative origami bowls and boxes, perfect for giving gifts in or storing small treasures.
