Weekly Origami class at Jaaga on Wednesday 7:30pm (updated time)
To: Krishna Panyam
Krishna Panyam is changing the class time for the Origami classes at Jaaga, to 7:30pm, as it was a common request from all those who were interested. If necessary, he will postpone the start of the classes to April.
The details about the classes:
Date: Every Wednesday, starting on Feb 29th
Time: 7:30 pm to 8:30pm
Location: Jaaga, on Double Road (www.jaaga.in)
Fees: Rs 500 for 6 classes, payable on the first day.
Age: At least 8-9 years.
What you need to bring: Your hands! All the required materials will be provided.
The purpose of the class is to make the students familiar with all the terminology, different traditional bases, techniques, etc of Origami. At the end of 6 weeks, the students should have the confidence to continue practicing the art of Origami on their own, using resources such as YouTube, books and the internet.
If the place/time are not convenient for you, or if you have other ideas and needs, please tell Krishna, and he can consider a change. If you can gather 8-10 students and have a place where he can hold the class, he is open to coming over to teach there. He is also open to holding one-time workshops for one or two hours, or even a whole day/weekend.
Krishna had exhibits and performances at the Japan Habba. Here is a report in today’s newspaper about Japan Habba.
There was a photo in one of the local Kannada papers, without Krishna’s name..
