Origami Palooza

Last Sunday afternoon, Japantown hosted Origami Palooza, a cute event where anyone is invited to pull up a chair & learn how to fold simple & not so simple origami models. It was nice to see that the activity appeals to people of all ages

A girl scout taught me to make a talking crow, & I folded a crane for the World Tree of Hope, which is displayed in City Hall at Christmas.

I was a bit awestruck to see origami phenomenon Goran Konjevod (the bald fellow on the right) patiently showing people how to fold intricate tessellations.

There was also a small exhibit.

A paper airplane contest was held outdoors in the Peace Plaza, where the wind was allowed to be a major factor in determining outcomes.
