Join the Fold: Exploring Origami and the Art of Paper Folding
Like many kids of Japanese descent, the first origami Derrick learned to make growing up were a samurai hat, boat, and crane. In traveling to El Salvador and Afghanistan on peacemaking delegations, as well as travels here in the United States, origami provided an easy way for him to engage with kids and adults alike. Derrick is co-owner of Reach and Teach, a store on 25th Avenue in San Mateo which provides books, unique toys, and fair trade gifts focused on peacemaking, gender equality, and sustainable living. He teaches monthly origami folding workshops.
