Paper Crafting


Explore paper folding and origami. You'll learn foundational techniques and create a miniature book in the first session. Then you'll progress to lanterns, modular polyhedra (where many similarly shaped "modules" are folded from a single sheet of paper then assembled to form a solid figure with many plane faces), boxes, crowns, and more in subsequent sessions.

Guided by experienced instructors, this practical and collaborative course gradually increases complexity, allowing participants to master the art of origami.

B. Sue Johnson

B. Sue has lived, as she calls it, "a well-creased life." When she was 10, she learned to fold an origami peace crane. The magic to be found in a folded piece of paper eventually led her to book arts and a fascination with illuminated paper. For 20 years, 1986–2005, she worked as a rural mail carrier for the US Postal Service on Bainbridge Island. Since retiring from federal service in 2016, she has created a series of origami installations outside the Winslow Post Office, paying homage to the postal service, as well as memorializing the painful history of the internment of the island’s Japanese American citizens and the bombing of Hiroshima during WWII.
