Try your hand at... origami
The ancient art of paper folding is associated with Japan, but is now a global phenomenon and has also inspired a host of homeware designs, with everything from ceramic pots to plastic accessories taking on its folded forms. It’s easy to get started – all you need is a sheet of paper! Double-sided origami paper packs are available from craft shops or choose a kit that includes how-tos on traditional shapes such as sailboats or cranes, before moving on to garlands, lampshades and even clocks.
