Fun With Origami
• 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.
Origami Definition
• 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 Origins 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 artist Akira
Yoshizawa (1911-2005).
First Book on Origami
• The first known book on how to make an
origami object was written in 1797 and is
called The Secret of One Thousand
Cranes Origami (Hiden Senbazuru Orikata)
