Orizomegami Workshop

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

Join a workshop with Artist Allison Svoboda as she teaches Orizomegami – the Japanese art form of folding and dying paper to reflect patterns found in nature. Participants will take home their creations! Suitable for adults and families with kids ages 8 and up. A responsible adult must accompany minors. Please wear clothing you can get a bit messy in.


Allison is an internationally exhibited artist who often creates delicate, ephemeral installations of paper and other materials. Nature is her inspiration.
