"Folding and Unfolding" Origami and Storytelling with Kuniko Yamamoto

Learn the art of using Origami and Storytelling by a master!

The art of origami, folding paper, and the art of storytelling, are deeply rooted in Japanese tradition.  Kuniko Yamamoto, a native of Japan and and award winning artist in Origami will incorporate both art forms to a creative performance piece, which you can present anywhere, anytime to any body with just a piece of  paper. Spontaneous ways to tell a story will be explored in this hands-on workshop.  Bring the child inside of you to laugh, giggle, sing, cry, dance…  The workshop aim is not to fold complex origami to show off, but a simple model to enjoy your creativity, so no origami experience is required (absolutely none).

Kuniko has worked years to develop her presentation and has done workshops and performances all over the country, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.  For more information on Kuniko, please visit her website  A passionate origami folder, Kuniko received a Temp Award from Origami USA in 2007.
