Origami is an ancient art of paper folding that originated in Chinese and Japanese culture. The technique is used by architects, designers and engineers. Learn how to fold an origami lantern at ADC in an upcoming event partnership with Origami Sydney Inc, aligned with their Folding Australia 2022 convention.

Fold an Origami Lampshade with Dr Michael Assis
Learn step-by-step how to fold an origami lantern with Dr Michael Assis, from his recent series of 3D origami corrugation lampshades. This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners to experienced makers, who are keen to understand the techniques of origami design at the intersection of mathematics and art. All materials are supplied.  

Dr Assis is a Brazilian and American mathematical physicist and artist. The inherent geometry of paper, together with the artistic constraints of origami, inform his folding as much as they inspire his designs. Michael searches for elegance by allowing geometry to dance through his paper. He has been folding and teaching for decades around the world, and more recently as president of Melbourne Origami Group inc. See more of his work here: instagram.com/oruline.design
