In light of COVID-19 pandemic, I have transitioned away from in-person origami instructions and adapted to online lessons in my home attic studio. I use a document camera, Zoom for group lessons and FaceTime for private lessons.

In this way, I can keep my students and myself safe, teach anyone in the world (in English or Japanese), and offer my service at a reasonable rate due to no commute and no provided materials. 

I’m delighted to continue promoting this profound art form to homeschooled children as well as anyone in need of art therapy during this challenging time.

Classes & Workshops

I teach classes at schools, libraries, camps, and elder care facilities, etc. Children learn art, math, science, language and social studies through origami, while having fun folding paper.

Origami is also great for seniors to stay active, for brain exercise and hand-eye coordination.

Whether you are looking to offer an one-time workshop or a series of classes, whether it is for school-aged children, teens, adults, seniors or mixed age, for a small group or a large group, I would be happy to propose a customized plan for you.

Birthday Parties

Origami would be a unique, fun activity for kids’ birthday parties. I can customize a lesson based on your child’s special interests, and/or party theme.

A handmade birthday card is included, as well as take-home party favors upon request. My origami kit would be available for purchase at a bulk price.

Showers

Folding paper with friends to prepare for a wedding or a baby’s arrival would be a bonding experience, not to mention that origami makes pretty decor for a wedding and a nursery.
