Paper Craft Artists

The wonderful world of Origami!

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper-folding. It started in the 17th Century Ad and since then has evolved into a modern art form. GU-PA (Japanese only), the brain child of paper artist Yasuyuki Wada,  is the result of that evolution.

These kits feature a selection of cute animal heads that can be assembled without tools and because they are reversible, you can choose your favourite color at the time of assembling them.
