Orukami by Himanshu Agrawal is a homage to the Japanese ancient art of paper folding. It is a combination of two words, Oru = "to fold" and kami = "paper". It will be a hands-on interactive experience for the participants; they will fold models ranging from beginner level to intermediate. The workshop will be conducted at a pace that everyone can follow.
