We are excited to offer a special origami gift wrapping class, featuring award winning origami  instructor and specialist in Japanese paper crafts, Vicky Mihara-Avery. Just in time for the holidays, this class covers quick and easy Japanese-inspired gift wrapping techniques through step-by-step demonstrations and hands-on practice.

  •   Use layers of coordinating papers for simple, elegant gift wrapping.
  •   Tie mizuhiki paper cords to give your gift that unique Japanese touch.
  •   Use furoshiki for inspired methods to wrap gifts, including unusually shaped objects.

This program will also include a trunk show featuring products from Vicky's company, Mountain Valley Paper Company, including gift wrap sets and her DVD, The Japanese Art of Gift Wrapping. 
 
 Vicky Mihara Avery is the third-generation in her family to promote and share the experience of Japanese paper crafts. Vicky recently made guest appearances on the Martha Stewart Show, the Carol Duvall Show, and Good Morning America. She has also been an invited lecturer and instructor at museums, festivals and origami conferences around the country.
  
The cost of the origami gift wrapping class  is $10 for members and $15 for non-members (includes admission to the museum). There is an additional $3 materials fee that will be collected at the beginning of class. Members who are also active volunteers at the museum will receive an additional $5 discount.
 
The class is limited to 20 students. Please contact PublicPrograms@jamsj.org  or call the JAMsj office at (408) 294-3138 to reserve your spot.
