    Simple Origami Ideas

    With the schools breaking up for the summer holidays, it can be a challenge to find ways of keeping the kids occupied.

    Back to present day and most people get involved in some kind of clean up to give their home or workspace a detox.

    We’ve been keeping ourselves occupied here in the Ryman office by making origami models. Originally developed in Japan in the seventeenth century, origami is the art of paper folding and is a great activity for kids which involves little more than a sheet of paper!

    Don’t let your imagination be a childhood flash in the pan, feed it with this unique way of creating art - Hirameki. The Japanese translation is actually ‘Flash of inspiration’ and this is exactly what it inspires.

    Perfect if you are bored of simply colouring inside the lines and a must have if you see unicorns in clouds. This leads us nicely onto the phenomenon which is Pareidoliam, involving an image or a sound wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists. In layman’s terms – a cloud that may look (in your mind’s eye) like a dragon dancing under an umbrella for example!
