About the Event
This origami class is not only a craft class. We use Origami as a tool to gain these benefits:
- Exercise the brain and memory
- Create sensations on your fingers to stimulate your brain
- Increase focus
- Feel confident and accomplished
- Make something fun and useful
- Learn how to create happiness by yourself
- Have a Zen mind
- Make new connections with the people who have the same goals
This class includes music and physical exercises with origami teaching. Music sets the mood and stimulates your hearing, and the color of the paper stimulates your field of vision. Folding paper correctly trains your finger muscles and builds muscle memory while memorizing the steps also stimulates your brain.
Learning the logic of origami patterns expands your geometric understanding and folding origami improves your focus and helps control your emotions.
