Paper folding, or origami, is a creative and easy-to-learn craft that’s great fun for all ages and abilities. This book demonstrates 26 fun and imaginative projects, each with straightforward diagrams and tips that will guide the reader from start to finish. Children can learn to make all sorts of figures from foxes to flying spaceships and from birds to floating boats. They can race jumping frogs, send gifts in a treasure box and amaze friends with the magic purse trick — all just using paper and imagination. Activities are graded by difficulty level from ‘starting out’ to ‘experienced’, enabling children to develop their skills gradually and creatively as they learn to make more complex figures. This book is ideal for teachers or parents with children aged 5 and up.
Reviews: ‘If, like me, origami is a mystery to you, then you will love this book. It makes this creative craft easy to learn and provides a wide variety of projects for fingers of all size¦ it is a book that would be as happy at home with children, siblings and friends as it would in school for wet lunchtimes, special occasions, art projects and crafty clubs.’
Author: Alice Harnecke has studied a variety of crafts — from knitting to painting — and has worked at some of the world’s top craft shows, but her favourite material has always been paper.
