ABOUT
ORIGAMI
Hello friends
BY GROUP NO.---1
• Origami is the Japanese art of paper
folding. "Ori" is the Japanese word for
folding and "kami" is the Japanese
word for paper.
Origami Definition
Types of Origami
• Origami has expanded and evolved beyond birds and boats. There
are now many types of origami. In a recent, informal survey,
origami enthusiasts have come up with over "80" different types
of origami. You can see the list here. In the future, we hope to
organize the list so that we can have a better understanding of
how the art form is evolving.
• There are different ways to categorize paper folding. John
Smith's sorts origami chronologically: Classical, Neo Classical,
Modern, and Hyper-Modern. David Mitchell's site shows a family
• tree of origami design styles.
• Below is a list of origami types featured in this web site. Each style
of origami will produce a different genre of origami models. Click
on to a branch of origami to learn more.
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).
Origami paper comes in many grades, types, and sizes. They are usually square in
shape, though some are circular or rectangular. The most common type is colored on
one side and white on the bottom size. This type of paper can be found in office supply
stores, arts & crafts stores, and on the internet. Click here to see a list of affordable
origami paper.
Duo paper has one color on the top, and another color on the bottom. This type of
paper is great for models where both sides of the paper will be visible, for example the
strawberry (by Rae Cooker). Duo paper is a little more rare but can be easily
purchased from OrigamiUSA and other online stores. Click here to see a list of
double sided origami paper.
Circular Origami Paper There are very few sources of circular origami paper because
there are relatively few diagrams starting with a circle. However, circular paper is
often used in kirigami. You can buy circular origami paper from amazon.com
Origami In Maths
• The connection with geometry is clear and yet
multifaceted; a folded model is both a piece of art
and a geometric figure. Just unfold it and take a
look! You will see a complex geometric pattern,
even if the model you folded was a simple one. A
beginning geometry student might want to figure
out the types of triangles on the paper. What
angles can be seen? What shapes? How did those
angles and shapes get there? Did you know that
you were folding those angles or shapes during the
folding itself?
