      Origami: Paws on Paper Summer Edition!

      Celebrate clear summer nights and bright summer days with hand-made stars and birds of your very own! Come into The Dancing Cat and try something a little different - Origami!

      With Denise Wang, of the South Bay Origami Group, learn origami, the ancient paper folding art which has long roots in both Japan and China. In the spirit of the season, put paws to paper with relaxed focus, gentle critical thinking, hand-eye coordination, and creative expression to create paper sculpture decorations - lovely for brightening up a home, and pet safe too!

      During this workshop, folders will be led through the basics of origami, and into a few summer-inspired and some traditional origami sculptures for you to show off at home. This workshop is intended for folders 12-years old and up, and artists of all skill levels (from beginner, to more experienced) are welcome.

      You are welcome to bring a beverage or snack of your liking, or buy something from (and support) The Dancing Cat.

      Class fee: $35 per person
      Wifi, catnip, and kitty-critiques are on the house.
      Only 10 spots available, so sign up soon!

      About Denise:

      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.
