Origami expert Mark Bolitho explains how to make perfectly formed origami objects that are pleasing to fold and make. As digital downtime becomes a constant quest in our fast-paced lives, the idea of contemplative, soothing arts and crafts is undergoing a serious revival. Each book contains 32 pages of origami paper so that you can try out these mindful projects for yourself. The Origami Garden divides into sections on Flowers and Plants (easy roses, cactus and pot, lilies and water lilies and many other flowers and foliage), Fruit and Vegetables (mushrooms, strawberries, pineapple, pears and chilli pepper) and Garden Life (birds, butterfly and frog).
MARK BOLITHO is a world renowned origami artist. Since 2004 he has worked full time as an origami designer. He has written several books, and produced many origami models for advertising and design projects. He is presently General Secretary of the British Origami Society.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- While I can not master the art of origami, it is so fun to learn. I was able to preserve the book by using our own paper, and still have a great time.
