Origami Cranes

The Japanese word Origami is a compound of two smaller Japanese words: “ori”, meaning to fold, and “kami”, meaning paper. A crane is the first thing many people think of when they hear the word Origami. According to Japanese legend, if you foldĀ 1,000 origami cranes you will be granted one wish. Origami cranes are often viewed as a sign of hope and peace.

Bushido Kenkyukai host many Origami Workshops, runs Origami booths at events, and teaches on site Origami classes throughout New Mexico. The most requested Origami subject we receive is the Crane. While the crane is not really a simple piece we have taught one on one with students of all ages from little kids to older adults. On Saturday January 25th we will be hosting an Origami Crane workshop at out facility from 10 am to 12 pm. (Supply fee:$12)

In our school, Bushido Kenkyukai, we have numerous origami cranes throughout our facility including 1000 Origami cranes hanging below a large origami crane from the ceiling. The cranes were folded by our students and out head instructor. Gallegos Sensei enjoys folding origami and is often seen folding origami cranes with all kinds of paper in interesting places.
