ORILAND: What Origami Can Be!

Dear Friend of Oriland,

Greetings! We are happy to bring the great news from the Oriland World!

Oribana Presentation at Ikebana International Toronto Chapter at JCCC!
Oribana Presentation at Ikebana International Toronto Chapter at JCCC
We had a wonderful time at Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre on June 20 here in Toronto, doing an Oribana presentation and mini-workshop for Ikebana International Toronto Chapter. The members of Ikebana Int were intrigued by what arts of Origami and Ikebana can achieve together. We had 12 miniature Oribana arrangements on display, that we discussed.
Also we enjoyed teaching our Ikebana friends how to fold an origami jasmine, which was a really fun activity, especially the final stage when the paper flower “blossomed” in their hands :-) It was lovely to have many interactions and discussions during the luncheon afterwards.

Origami Jasmine by Katrin Shumakov

You can try your hands in folding this charming origami Jasmine too! The diagrams are available at Oriland Origami Studio at http://www.oriland.com/studio/diagram.php?category=plants&model=jasmine&page=1&pages=6

Special thanks to Karen Lo, President of Toronto Chapter 208 of Ikebana International, for inviting us and organizing a wonderful event!
As our friends in Ikebana International say “Friendship through flowers”!
