Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. Students and parents will learn the foundations for creating fun paper sculpture works and further advance their techniques in origami. All supplies will be provided, including 10 sheets of large-scale paper and two John Montroll origami books.

Epic Origami was founded by Bonnie Cherni, a local Boulder resident. She engages a team of accomplished origami artists and innovative engineers to collaborate together to create fascinating origami exhibitions. Recent exhibitions include a 7.5 foot origami dragon install in front of Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, CO (2019), a full gallery installation at the Denver International Airport (2018), Waimea Ocean Film Festival (2015-2020), ‘lmiloa Astronomy Center (2015), Keck Observatory (2014), and Kahilu Theatre (2013).
