Origami Pouch

with Kathleen Sheridan
Tuesday, December 5; 6–9pm CT

In this virtual workshop, fold a useful and decorative origami pouch designed by Italian origami master Franco Pavarin. With paper alone, we’ll work with our hands to make this satisfying and meditative project. This practice structure can be used as a container for art, to store small items, or to hold a gift. A 12 x 12 inch piece of paper yields a pouch measuring approximately 5 inches wide and 4 inches tall.

Prior folding experience is recommended for some advanced maneuvers.
