Kusudama Flower workshop

I  hosted an origami flower making workshop for members of our Art Honor Society and the local Girl Scout troop, and their mothers, who generously gave their time to make something special to give to caregivers of cancer survivors at the May 2nd Hen Hud Stay-Awake-a-thon.

Each attendee learned how to create a Kusudama flower (which in Japanese means “medicine ball”) using beautifully printed origami paper.

I love the idea of making a flower that will not die. The paper ‘Kusudama’ origami flower is a wonderful keepsake and I cannot thank Tina Struver enough for helping me to organize the event. Special thanks to all those who were involved!
