Top Origamist Design Challenge at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum

On November 1st, Taro’s Origami Studio will be hosting its second origami design challenge and competition at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. The museum has once again generously partnered with us for this exciting event. We offer a 50% off registration discount ($10) for Taro’s members.  The event is designed for both children and adults even though it is held at the children’s museum.

The event features a fun-filled afternoon planned to introduce and develop paper-folding skills to help nurture creativity in each of us. A theme will be selected on the day of the competition and each participant will be walked through each step of the design process—from conceptualization, testing and prototyping, to the final stages.

No experience necessary, just an eager mind. Events designed for all proficiency levels of beginner, intermediate and advanced folders.  To check out our last event on one-minute video at Youtube.com.

We are the Best of New York 2012 “Best Crafts” by New York Magazine!

Could there be a better match of neighborhood and business than Park Slope’s new origami studio? Taro’s is a soothing, light-filled, ­second-floor atelier completely devoted to the Japanese art of paper-folding, with materials displayed by color on the walls. The better for concentrating; it’s amazing how quietly busy kids get at the work tables. Creations here range from simple (a frog) to rococo (a dragon) and are taught via computer tablets that walk little fingers through each step while staffers check on their progress. Private and group classes are available, but plenty of customers drop in, too. (Taro’s charges $10 for a half-hour and three sheets of origami paper. You can also schedule a two-hour, fifteen-person birthday party for $450.)”
