February Half Term - Art of Chinese Paper Folding

The Courthouse Thirsk
Tuesday 13th February

We are celebrating Chinese New Year with the art of origami in our February family workshops! The name origami is a Japanese term from the words our (to fold) and kami (paper). In China, the art of folding paper is referred to by the Chinese name zhezhi. Chinese paper folders tend to focus more on making inanimate objects such as boats or small dishes. They are also credited with developing many types of paper toys for children. Parents found folding toys for their children from scrap paper became a way to give old materials that would of gone to waste, a new life.
