      About the Artists:

      Denise used to fold traditional Origami models as a kid. In recent years, a series of incidental encounters re-connected her with this childhood hobby, and opened her eyes to the fascinating world of modern day Origami and the multitude of intricate techniques involved in paper folding. Since this reconnection, Origami has become a channel for her creativity, acts as a form of meditation, and become an unexpected platform for learning. Currently, Denise continues her Origami journey while teaching this incredibly fun art form to others.

      Tim likes making all types of paper crafts, and has been folding paper and making origami for several years. In addition to especially liking geometric and tessellation origami, Tim also enjoys woodworking, Celtic knotting, drumming, and wire wrap jewelry.

      Cost: Payment required - 20.00
