Day 109 : origami

origaami

Early paper folding was done in China after they invented paper in the first century but Japan took origami to a higher level form of art after they were introduced to it in the sixth century. Japanese origami paper is thin though not too delicate so the folds can be very precise and crisp.

Sandy: I still have my childhood “how to” origami book published in 1960. I loved doing origami as a child. It was fascinating to see what I could make out of paper. My favorite was the crane because I could make it so it’s wings would flap.

Kelly: That book is so cool Sandy! I need the directions to the crane.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
