Craft workshop – our origami tribute to the Year of the Cat

November 5, 2023 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM


Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. In modern usage, the word “origami” is often used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin…. (Wikipedia)

We have about 4 months left of the Year of the Cat.  Given so many of us love cats and before we enter the Year of the Dragon we are running an origami Year of the Cat workshop to celebrate our cute furry friends.

Origami artist Hoàng Tiến Quyết will guide us in how to make a paper cat companion for our own cats or if you don’t have a cat that doesn’t matter… this workshop is for everyone.

As Quyết’s website says “I have been folding paper since I was a small kid. At the time I was amazed at how a flat sheet of paper could transform into beautiful 3D animals and objects, and it was also a joy of a kid who could make his own toys.  I kept folding alone for a long time, till I found Vietnam Origami Group forum ……I like working with new and fresh ideas, and always try to breathe life and my personality into my models. I hope people can also feel that from my work
