Taro’s Origami Artist Basic Certification Course
TARO’S ORIGAMI METHOD OVERVIEW
Taro’s Origami Studio is home to one of the first origami studios in the United States and through years of refinement and teaching, they have created a definitive and comprehensive system for learning origami. Most origami books or classes are focused on learning specific models, but what makes the Taro’s Origami Method unique is its focus on learning all of origami, so that you can become fluent in the art form for years to come. The method is based off of the centuries old tradition of martial arts, where you learn the simpler maneuvers as a foundation, so you can add to it as you master newer and more complex folds.
Taro’s offer a wide variety of origami courses that you can learn and become certified in, but each one begins here with the basic course. Once you have passed this basic course you will be able to try out any number of different applications for paper folding, like modulars, tessellations, flowers, or animals. Have a look, and see if you’re ready to begin your origami journey!
