Origami Workshop at MOA Wellness!

Exploring Modular Origami —Friday June 3 from 10:30am-12pm

At MOA Wellness ‘Ohana Room (600 Queen Street, Suite C2).

Cost: $20/person, $30/ for 2, if you sign up with a friend or family member!


Paper folding can be fun and relaxing, and more and more care providers and researchers have found that it can also help to develop and enhance fine motor skills! Through the repetition of basic folding patterns, fine motor skills are developed through handling and manipulating paper. Modular origami uses multiple sheets of paper to create larger and more complex structures than would be possible using single-piece origami techniques. In modular origami, each individual sheet of paper is folded into a module, or unit, and then modules are assembled. This class gives students an opportunity to make multiple projects that they select themselves. We will develop and expand visual-spatial and fine motor skills, as well as build confidence to work on increasingly challenging self-selected projects.

Open to all ages! Bring a friend/child/grandchild!

No prior experience necessary, but I strongly recommend that students be at least 5 years of age because it is a shared class environment and it is important that each folder can listen to and follow directions!

Adults accompanying children under the age of 8 can join the class for free so that they may learn the basic folds so that they can help their children at home.

Spaces are limited!  Please pre-register!

Taught by Vivian Best who loves working with students of all ages to explore creative possibilities! Questions? To register, call Vivian at 282-0053 or email her at
