Origami is a famous ancient art form that originated in Japan and its name literally means folding paper. This art consists of folding a single sheet of square paper into a beautiful sculpture without even going through the processes of cutting, glueing, taping, and marking, thus making it fun and hassle-free. With the development of civilizations, Origami became very popular throughout the globe. The everyday artist is taking a deep dive into the world of this art to develop and innovate new methods and technologies.

Rooftop organized an amazing origami workshop for you to explore the deep and mystical world of the marvellous art form and invited expert artist Aditi Anuj to facilitate the session.
