Origami is the traditional Japanese art or technique of folding paper into forms of animals, plants, everyday items and more. It is often done just for fun, but can also incorporate religious and ceremonial dimensions. In recent years, the artistic side of origami has been reassessed, giving rise to many exceptional works and new folding styles. Research is being done into the mathematics behind the geometric forms, as well. For the current project, workshops will be conducted in different cities across India, in which three origami artists will teach the basics of folding to beginners and, at some venues, more advanced techniques to those at intermediate and advanced levels. The artists will also introduce their own work and some relevant history.
