What is origami?

Origami is the technique of folding paper. Originated in Japan several hundred years ago, origami is an art and a play, a way of relaxation and socialization, but above all it is a training of the mind. It has the gift of raising the children self-confidence, due to their own effort that leads to obtaining "toys" from a simple sheet of paper.


It is a relaxing and fun activity, which does not require any innate aptitude. The child brings home the results of his work, but not only that: he shares to the family the joy and self-confidence obtained.

Target group

"Children" aged 7 to 77 years.

Purposes of the Project

  • Familiarize children with what Origami art means;
  • Development, through play, of attention to detail, improvement of orientation in space, logical thinking, precision, discipline and communication.
  • Learning and / or deepening some intuitive mathematical notions (in other words, geometry and fractions).
  • Stimulating the skill, creativity and ability to concentrate, ultimately focusing on increasing school performance.
  • Develop respect and responsibility towards nature by approaching with other eyes the notion of "paper recycling".
