The Art of Origami in the Library

During the 2016-17 semesters Clermont College Library will be offering a variety of hands-on activities throughout the year that we hope evokes a sense of enjoyment and rejuvenation.

This month, stop by between classes and practice the art cranesof origami. We’ll have a table set up with instructions and origami paper provided. Use this as a time to relax during the busy day or just explore the craft of paper folding.

The crane is one of the most popular pieces of origami. According to National Geographic, the crane was thought to live for 1,000 years and became a symbol of hope.

You may want to check out Leyla Torres YouTube video where she shows how to fold a paper crane.

We also have origami books in the library:
Absolute beginner’s origami : the simple three-stage guide to creating expert origami 

Origami jewelry : more than 40 exquisite designs to fold and wear

If you want a few minutes to chill between classes or an hour to zone out and relax, stop by the library and fold paper.
