Hands-On History

Join the Fold: Exploring Origami and the Art of Paper Folding

On Saturday, October 17, the Hands-on History series continues as Derrick Kikuchi presents Join the Fold: Exploring Origami and the Art of Paper Folding.

In this fun and very hands-on session, you will learn a little about the history of origami and ways in which computers have changed the state of the art. You will leave with a few origami creations of your own.

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.
