The ancient Japanese art of making stylized figures by folding paper (origami) is for everyone
In Japan, there is a belief that anyone who makes 1000 paper cranes using the origami technique will have a happy and rich life. This traditional art of paper folding is both a hobby and an art. Beginners can use the book/manual to make their first independent figure because the manuals also have diagrams. This creative skill regenerates and cleanses the soul, but also calms turbulent thoughts.
Paper folding contributes especially to the development of motor skills in children and awakens associative skills. There is simple origami with one figure, but also modular origami (composed of several figures) and extreme origami (present at competitions). Every year, the World Origami Exhibition is held, where individuals and groups present their skills in making figures by folding paper. It seems that in these gloomy times, many people can find salvation in this cheap but extraordinary hobby. On the YouTube channel, you can find various tutorials intended for beginners and those who are advanced in origami.
