On Saturday, the Elkin Public Library will present Origami for Adults workshop from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with method creator Aaron Krerowicz.

Krerowicz created this form of Origami after experiencing frustration trying to learn the traditional form. “I wanted a basic understanding so I checked out all these books from the local libraries and they were all terrible,” explained Krerowicz. “The directions were complicated and poorly written.”

Because of that, Krerowicz developed his own form with printable sheets to help beginners learn the folds. Each page has two matching numbers. “If you make a fold where ‘one’ doesn’t touch ‘one’ then you know you did it wrong, described Krerowicz. “You learn by doing it.”

Krerowicz described the printed pages as training wheels. “You start with the training wheels on and you learn the folds, then you take them off and try on your own.”

Anyone wishing to participate in must RSVP through the Elkin Public Library by calling 336-835-5586, visiting https://www.facebook.com/events/232738560465786/ or emailing [email protected]
