2019 Origami-Palooza & The Great Paper Airplane Contest

August 25, 2019

Event sponsored by the East and West Japan Center Malls, produced by the Paper Tree.

At the 2019 Origami-Palooza & The Great Paper Airplane Contest, learn the art of origami, enter origami contests and participate in a paper airplane contest.

Here is what we have in store for 2019:

  • LEARN – For example, learn the art of origami from experts to create amazing things with paper. For instance, we have more than a dozen origami teachers and activities for folders of all levels.
  • MAKE A WISH, FOLD A CRANE – Additionally, join members of Rainbow World Fund as they gather wishes and cranes for the World Tree of Hope. Additionally, make a wish for peace.
  • FOLD WITH A MASTER – After wishing for world peace,
    FOLD WITH A MASTER – Join Jeremy Shafer, entertainer and author of “Origami to Astonish and Amuse.” In a fun, classroom style, learn some new origami skills. Jeremy delights audiences by demonstrating his amazing original models. Imagine a piece of paper folded into nail clippers that really work, or a Swiss Army knife that actually opens, or a surfer on a wave that crashes  when the surfer is slid forward. Giant pop-ups, crazy transforming hats, and models that explode open in vibrant colors maybe part of Jeremy’s spectacular and unique Origami Palooza show. In addition he has lots of surprisingly  simple original models that he can teach to large crowds. Be sure to register now.
