Learn the ancient Japanese art of paper folding
Students sit outside at a table learning origami, the ancient art of paper folding, in the 34th Street district in New York City.

Learn the art of creative paper folding in the Japanese tradition. All ages and skill levels are welcome, and materials are provided.

No registration is required. Participants will be seated at least three feet apart, and will be required to wear face masks during class. If rain is predicted, class will be rescheduled for a later date in September.

Please note that the origami program has concluded for the season. See you next year!
