ABOUT KUSUDAMA ORIGAMI


Kusudama (sometimes known as ‘Sakuradama’ – or ‘Cherry Blossom Ball’) – literally means ‘medicine ball.’ Kusudama date back to ancient Japanese culture, when they were originally made from herbs or flowers. As with so much of Japanese culture, they eventually evolved into an art-form unto themselves – and are now most commonly made as decorations or gifts.


Apart from nurturing your inner creative spirit – this workshop comes just in time to add some decorative flair and cheer to your home for Chinese New Year!


ABOUT SURZHÅNA


From her early years Surzhana possessed a deep interest for different cultures of the world: their customs, music, folklore, arts and craft, as well as their costumes and fashion. This interest, along with a diverse childhood experience, have fused into her artistic style and painting.


In 2008 Surzhana earned her Bachelor degree in History of Arts from Moscow State University and in 2015 graduated from Beijing institute of Fashion Technology with a major in Fashion Design. She brings her expertise of Origami from the Japanese Cultural Centre in Moscow to Beijing. A multi-faced artist, she uses the precept of ancestral Japanese origami art to design minimalist folding dresses.
