Transcript of Origami

By: Yasmeen Hussain Definition of Origami Origami, (pronounced or-i-GA-me) is the Japanese art of paper folding. "Ori" is the Japanese word for folding and "kami" is the Japanese word for paper. The Origins of Origami Although origami is known as a Japanese art, it actually began in China. The Chinese invented paper around 100 A.D., and when the invention spread to Japan around 600 A.D.,
so did the art of paper folding. The History of Origami Origami was only used for special occasions because paper was scarce.
Figures made had special meanings to them.
Constructions were done using a single sheet of colored paper that was often square.
None of the folding instructions were written down, so they were passed down through learning and practicing.
The art of paper folding wasn't called origami until the end of the 19th century. By the 1950's origami gained popularity from Akira Yoshizawa (famous origami artist). Origami provides educational values, a good form of physical therapy and therapeutic values. The Benefits of Origami Educational Value New method of teaching
