If you’ve been looking to up your origami game, come join this advanced origami workshop! This session is open to anyone who wants to learn something beyond simple patterns and isn’t afraid of a challenge and already has a base knowledge of the art form. The fold we create together will depend on the skill level of those who attend.
This event is sponsored by the Young Professionals Committee of the Japan America Society of Chicago.
A variety of paper will be provided. Space is extremely limited at this event so register quickly! This event will be held at Konbini & Kanpai with a one drink minimum (drinks are not included with purchase of a ticket.)

Konbini & Kanpai
Whether it’s an everyday family dinner, monumental milestone, or just making it to the end of a long day, tasty cold beers or sippable wines have been intertwined throughout our lives’ big and small celebrations. We remember the refreshing cider we had while apple picking in Michigan and discovering our love for Sauvignon Blanc wines during our three-week road trip around southern New Zealand. We wanted to combine these experiences with our love of the Japanese convenient store (aka Konbini) to create our friendly alchohol store in Lakeview — a neighborhood we call home. Come stop by, say hi, and explore our craft beers, wines, sakes, and non-alcoholic beverage offerings! Organized by flavor so your taste buds or our knowledgeable staff can easily guide you. Kanpai (cheers in Japanese)!
