Event Details

In partnership with Japan America Society of Iowa, join the Des Moines Art Center in celebration of Japanese Hinamatsuri Weekend! Guests are invited to join an instructor to learn about and try their hand at the practice of origami.

Origami is an enchanting traditional craft that transforms a simple piece of paper into intricate three-dimensional objects. The essence of successful origami lies in three key elements: precision, pressure, and patience. Each fold demands precision, ensuring that corners meet exactly, and sides align seamlessly. Applying the appropriate amount of pressure is crucial to establish creases that hold. Equally important is practicing patience, allowing yourself the time to carefully navigate through each step of the process.

This event is free, and registration is not required. Generous support provided by Art Bridges Foundation’s Access for All programs.
