Tanabata, Japanese Star Festival at Portland Japanese Garden

I will be working at the Japanese Garden as a part of their Tanabata, Japanese Star Festival event from 1 to 3pm on Saturday, July 7th!  This time, I won't be teaching origami, but instead I will be demonstrating my origami work.  I plan to fold several models that are appropriate for the occasion, including some ornaments for Tanabata as well as flora and fauna of the season.  The garden will also have live music by a local guitarist Toshi Onizuka, storytelling by Michiko Kornhauser, and origami instructions by PSU student volunteers.  I am excited to be a part of this event!
