Yesterday I watched instructor M. Craig (half Japanese Nisei) teach and fold origami (Japanese paper folding) in a children’s workshop, and also took photos below of her lovely origami creations scattered throughout the newly opened Yume Japanese Gardens in Tucson.
An origami workshop for adults is scheduled for today at 2 p.m. at the Yume Japanese Gardens. The workshop costs $10 and does not include admission to the gardens.
Here’s a sampling of some of the beauty of what you will see at this origami exhibit, ongoing till April 14. Yume Japanese Gardens is open daily, 9:30 to 4:30 p.m. at 2130 N. Alvernon Way (just south of Tucson Botanical Gardens). There are many more beautiful & colorful origami creations throughout the gardens to view.
