“Bubble”-origami workshop

In this workshop, we craft a fun Japanese “BUBBLE”. This is a toy on a bamboo stick, and it changes shape when you spin the stick between your hands.

White Cellar
Tickets: with a museum ticket
16 €/ 14 €/ Museum Card. Entry is free for those under 18 years.

You can attach, for example, an origami fish or bird inside the bubble. This makes the spinning bubble look like a birdcage, aquarium or carousel.

The bubble uses environmentally friendly materials, paper and bamboo, as in traditional Japanese toys, such as dragonflies or spinning tops, or as in origami (paper-folding). The bubble was designed by the Japanese artist Harue Umemoto in 2002. The spinning bubble delights both children and adults. Come and give it a go!

The workshop instructor is Mari Paasonen. The group can accommodate up to 4 children and their guardians.

The workshop is realised in cooperation with Japanilaisen kulttuurin ystävät ry (Friends of Japanese Culture).
