Owing to the huge popularity of the previous event in May, Asia Society is once again launching an origami workshop over Zoom, in collaboration with Ms. Misaki Nagaoka. Kids are most welcome! We encourage you to come to fold the paper crane (tsuru), cicada (semi), and balloon (fusen), also learning the cultural significance behind these crafts. By the end of the hour, you will have your own origami crafts, and you can teach your friends too! Please prepare three pieces of square origami paper for the workshop. *
The session will be led by Ms. Misaki Nagaoka, BA and MA in Political Science, Waseda University, is a research assistant at, Department of Japanese Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong. Born and raised in Tokyo, she has lived in Hong Kong since 2017. Her interests include Japanese calligraphy, foreign languages, and identity in a multicultural context.
In May 2020, Ms. Nagaoka led a handicrafts workshop for CUHK's Multiculturalism in Action Project, helping participants gain a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and the environment in which origami developed. In May 2021, Ms. Nagaoka led a workshop at Asia Society, where members from all around the world joined to learn about Japanese culture and fold the sanpo and shuriken.
*Members can purchase the square paper from local stationery stores, AEON, Muji, dollar stores, etc.
