Origami Originals

If Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Garden's latest exhibit, Origami in the Garden, has piqued your youngsters' curiosity about the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, there are plenty of opportunities to learn more.

Central Ohio is home to the Ohio Paper Folders Club, a group of origami enthusiasts who enjoy sharing their craft. The club will host an origami exhibit July 29 and 30 at the Holiday Inn in Worthington, 7007 N. High St.

The club's exhibit will be more traditional than the conservatory's display, which is made up of monumental sculptures and large-scale installations designed to tell the story of origami. The conservatory exhibit runs through Nov. 13.

The Ohio Paper Folders Club also hosts regular meetings on the third Sunday of the month at the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington, 777 Evening St.
