Annual Origami Festival Set at Japanese Garden on July 12

Published: July 1, 2009

Community members can discover why people have been enchanted by the art of origami—Japanese paper folding—for centuries as CSULB’s Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden hosts the annual Origami Festival on Sunday, July 12, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Guests can receive hands-on experience creating a three dimensional object from a single sheet of paper. More than 40 experts from local and national origami clubs will teach a variety of different types of origami for people of all experience levels. As one of the most economical art forms, origami is a craft that can be produced from the recycling bin.

Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for Japanese Garden members and free for children 12 and under.
