Master Origami Artist Visits NSU, Teaches Techniques to University School Students & Library Patrons

Master origami artist Makoto Yamaguchi, who created the Origami Caravan which brought art and activities to the children in shelters following Japan’s devastating 2011 tsunami and earthquake, recently visited NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library and hosted an origami crafts workshop. NSU was one of the few U.S. locations honored to host Yamaguchi and the Origami Caravan.

The class attracted library patrons, and more than 40 Middle School students from University School of NSU. The class was also part of an ongoing partnership between NSU and the Japanese Consulate General in Miami which was created through NSU’s Office of International Affairs.

Through this partnership, in 2011, NSU also donated more than $3,000 to the Consulate General of Miami after holding a candlelight vigil for the victims of Japan’s tsunami and earthquake.
