Joplin Origami Club
Established to continue and promote the ancient art of Origami.

Public and Private Origami Demonstrations

Thirty minute program:

Display: Will include many of the Origami books that are on the market. Examples of several of the accepted forms of Origami ie. traditional single sheet models, multi sheet compounds, and examples of modular Origami.

Performance: A walk through the history and development of origami through the centuries. Having it's origins in China it spread east, to the Japanese who brought origami out of traditional models into everyday use. Then west into the Islamic world and the pure geometry of modular origami. Origami has existed for more than a thousand years, yet few ever get to see the beauty of the creation of a three dimensional model carefully crafted from a flat piece of paper.
