Origami Definition
  • Origami, (pronounced or-i-ga-me) is the Japanese art of paper folding. "Ori" is the Japanese word for folding and "kami" is the Japanese word for paper , as in paper folding.It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.

Although Origami is known as a Japanese Art, it actually began in China. The Chinese invented paper around 100 A.D., and when the invention spread to Japan around 600 A.D., so did the art of paper folding.

the history of origami
The History of Origami
  • In ancient times, Origami could only be used for special occasions because the paper was scarce. The figures made from origami were shaped like animals, costumed people, and ceremonial designs that had special meanings to them. The constructions were done using a single sheet of colored paper that was often, though not always, square.
  • There were no directions back then. None of the folding instructions were ever written down for the models. They were passed down by generation through learning and practicing.
  • The art of paper folding was not called Origami until the end of the nineteenth century. By the 1950’s origami gained popularity from world famous origami artistAkira Yoshizawa(1911-2005).
