Origami Workshop and Furoshiki Demonstration

In honour of Asian Heritage Month, the Harper Grey Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee (DIBC) arranged a Furoshiki and Origami workshop hosted by one of our talented firm members, Paula.

Paula artfully showed the group how to wrap various gifts with a Japanese textile called a Fukusa. After the demonstration she walked the group though folding an origami crane. There were a few miss steps but by the end everyone had a perfect paper crane.

The origami crane, Tsuru in Japanese, is a symbol of honour, good fortune, loyalty, and longevity. Legend says if you fold 1,000 cranes you will be granted a wish.

Thanks to everyone who joined the workshop and to the DIBC for organizing such a fun event.
