Origami expert Mark Bolitho explains how to make perfectly formed origami objects that are pleasing to fold and make. As digital downtime becomes a constant quest in our fast-paced lives, the idea of contemplative, soothing arts and crafts is undergoing a serious revival. Each title contains 32 pages of origami paper so that you can try out these mindful projects for yourself.
The Origami Garden divides into sections on Seeds and Plants (easy roses, seedling in pots, cactus and pot, easy leaf and stalk system, nuts in a bowl, pine tree and palm leaf), Flowers (classic lilies and water lilies, violet, fuchsia, bunch of flowers, forget-me-nots), Fruit and Vegetables (mushrooms, strawberries, pears and chilli pepper) and Garden Life (birds, butterfly, frog and snail).
