Transcript

  • 1. Origami A History
  • 2. Paper
    • Paper was brought to Japan in the 6 th century. It is here that paper folding became an art form and evolved into what we know today as origami.
    • Initially, paper was expensive and therefore not available to the general public.
  • 3. Paper Folding
    • Paper folding, was not a hobby: it was for formal functions.
      • For example: "Noshi" was folded-paper that accompanied gifts. "Tsutsumi" was formal gift wrappers.
      • These ceremonial folds were simple and symbolized sincerity and purity.
  • 4. Paper’s Travels
    • Historians believe that paper and paper making came to Europe from Asia via the Silk Route between the 8 th and 12 th century.
  • 5. The birth of Origami
    • In the 1950, Akira Yoshizana and Sam Randlett developed a standard set of origami symbols to describe how to fold paper into models. We still use these standards today.
    • By 1890's, the word origami was more or less officially used to refer to what we call as origami. Previous to this time, it was called "orikata", "orisue", "orimono", or "tatamigami".
