Event Details

For hundreds of years, Japanese people have been coexistent and deeply connected with nature. This workshop aims to introduce two traditional Japanese cultures that emerged from such foundation — origami, an art of paper folding, and haiku, a Japanese-style poem — using the wildlife in Escondido Creek as our inspiration. $5 donations for our instructor are appreciated!
