Origami Demonstration

Join us at AsiaStore where world-renowned origami master Michael G. LaFosse and Richard Alexander will demonstrate this ancient Japanese paper folding technique. Mr. LaFosse and Mr. Alexander’s origami kits and books will be available for signing at AsiaStore.

LaFosse has been an origami artist for over 40 years and is considered a leading authority and master of the art. An avid teacher, he co-founded the Origamido Studio, a learning center and design studio dedicated to the art of origami, and the only place in the world specializing in hand papermaking for the origami artist. Author of many books and videotapes relating to paperfolding and hand papermaking, LaFosse produces fine paper art and commercial designs for a variety of international clients. He was prominently featured in the recent Peabody Award-winning documentary Between the Folds

Richard L. Alexander co-founded the Origamido Studio, where he is the chief papermaker. As a designer, his specialties have included biology (systems ecology) and landscape architecture. Together, Alexander and LaFosse have created dozens of origami exhibitions, and more than 70 books, kits, and videos about paper and paper arts.
