For our very first Family Saturday in April, Seattle-based origami group, P.A.P.E.R., will show you some origami techniques in the Tateuchi Community Room.

The roots of Ori (折り, folding) Gami (紙=kami, paper) originates in the 6th century in Japan. Use of paper was limited only to formal ceremonies and rituals and was not commonly available for recreational paper folding until the 17th century. Today, origami is enjoyed around the world and continues to evolve its art form.

Please join us for Origami in the Garden and experience the joy of paper folding!

Papers and instructions will be available for all visitors in the community room 11pm - 1pm. FREE admission to all youth 12 and younger from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Family Saturday.

About Origami
Origami, the art of paper folding, has deep roots in Japanese culture and history. Its origins trace back over a thousand years to ancient Japan, where it emerged as a traditional form of artistic expression and meditation. The exact date of its inception is uncertain, but it is believed to have originated in the 6th century or earlier.

Origami was initially practiced by the Japanese elite, including nobles and samurai, who used it for ceremonial purposes and religious rituals. Over time, it evolved to become a popular pastime among people of all social classes, with the techniques and designs being passed down through generations. The earliest known reference to origami in Japan dates back to the Heian period (794-1185), where it was mentioned in literature.

The art of origami has since spread beyond Japan's borders, captivating people worldwide with its beauty and precision. Despite its ancient origins, origami continues to evolve, with modern artists pushing the boundaries of the art form through innovative techniques and designs.
