ORIGAMI workshop

 

The Embassy of Japan in Greece in collaboration with the Corfu Museum of Asian Art organizes a series of Origami workshops (Japanese art of paper folding). Origami Master, Ms. Sonoko Fujii, will come to Corfu from Japan to instruct origami in Greek language. This year, the theme of the origami workshops is “Lafcadio Hearn”, a Greek-Irish writer who lived in Japan in the 19th century and introduced the tradition and literature of Japan to the West.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition entitled “Lafcadio Hearn. The Unfamiliar Japan” which includes rare editions of Hearn’s selected essays, first editions and original writings. The exhibition is enriched by woodblock prints (Ukiyo-e) of major Japanese artists like Hokusai (1760-1849), Kunisada (1786-1864) and Hiroshige (1797–1858).
