Welcome to Taro’s Park Slope Origami Workshop Studio!

Taro’s Origami Studio is a space dedicated to the art and expression of origami folding. By folding origami one at a time with focus and care, one can enjoy the beauty of process itself while your creativity is expressed from a sheet of paper to something completely new. Taro’s Origami Studio offers Drop in & try out corners, classes, summer camp, party space rentals, group arrangement, and workshops for all levels of children and adults.

Taro’s Origami Studio Presents: The Future & Top Origamist Challenge!

On May 18th, Taro’s Origami Studio will be hosting its first origami design challenge and competition at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum which has generously partnered with us and has offered use of their space for this exciting event.

Event to be held at:
Brooklyn Children’s Museum
145 Brooklyn Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11213

Please address all inquiries about event to:
Taro’s Origami Studio
(718) 360-5435

The event features a fun-filled afternoon planned to introduce and develop paper-folding skills to help expand a child’s creativity by taking them through the steps of designing origami models of their very own. A theme will be selected on the day of the competition and each child will be walked through each step of the design process — from concept, testing and prototyping, to the final stages.

No experience necessary, just an eager mind.

Events designed for all proficiency levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced folders.

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.)”
