What you'll do

In this class, before folding anythings I will show the 3 different kind of hands warm up exercises so the blood circulates efficiently and make your hands move good. I will start with super easy and very simple things for the clients who have never done it before. I will be checking to see if they are comfortable doing for 1 hour including basic folds depends on how it goes. If they are willing to continue more challenging things, including 5 minutes break at the 30 minutes point, I could teach up to 2 hours at most per class ( in this case I will take a cash or pay pal) for additional payment. Things that we would be folding could mainly be somethings memorable for being in Boston as a souvenir but not complicated because of the time limitation. We are going to take it easy and enjoy folding with a big smile on your face!
Other things to note
The class fee will be $25 per hour per person in each class
1 pack of origami papers are provided.
I'll ask about your background with origami and your skill level in the e-mail before.

I am a native Japanese origami practitioner. I have started doing origami for a rehabilitation of my hands. I have discovered that the origami is more deep, calming and enjoyable. Can you imagine how that one boring paper could turn into something super incredible!! I would like to share this feelings to others! I am also a member of the Origami USA and I am an aspired self studying art therapy student with using origami and recognized by Origami Therapy Association (OTA) in New York!

Where you'll be

The class will be held in downtown Boston (any places possibly inside in Downtown Crossing). But I am pretty flexible. If you want to have it in different places, please let me know. I will definitely consider suiting your preference. Because of coronavirus, it is hard to find the place with seats available inside of any public places. It is going to be at any outside table or lobbies in the hotel, something like this. I will let you know.

This was a very different and fun experience. We ended up folding and creating multiple things. Junko is friendly and a good teacher. Worth going if you have a friend or date along.

Junkies was very kind and welcoming and made me feel at ease even though I’ve never done origami before. She was very patient and kind. She helped when I needed it and let me try on my own when that was working. A great teacher! I had fun and went home with some kawaii souvenirs:)
