Door 16: Feeling crafty!

Step away from the screen and get creative...


Did you know Origami provides both mental and physical exercise? Develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and mental concentration, directly stimulating left and right hemispheres of your brain. Origami is used in therapeutic settings including art therapy and stroke and injury rehabilitation. Source

The OU Students Association staff team got together (virtually!) last week to try out some Origami. Though some creations ended up looking a little… unique, others turned out beautifully. Regardless of the outcome, we all enjoyed the process and recommend you give the following pieces a go…

We’d love to see your works of Origami art! Please do share them with us on Facebook and Twitter.










Paper tree

Some found this tutorial a breeze, though others found it really quite challenging - one to watch a few times!

  

Paper snowflakes

They said that no two snowflakes look the same... Ours definitely turned out very differently! This craft is simple and quick - but fun!
