About Partner

I fold paper, twist it, crease it, play with it. It's a joy to see what unfolds when paper folds - Hands On Paper is a platform to share this joy with a larger world than my home!

From visualising it to making it tangible, this program makes mathematical and design thinking concepts jump out of paper and into your hands through the ancient art of paper-folding. We fold geometric shapes – and unfold geometric puzzles in this 10-week program that is now in its 3rd batch (Each student gets the flexibility to attend any 10 of the 12 sessions that the program will run for.) With a limited batch size of 12 students, the program promises to propel a love for papercraft and geometry. For more details, please have a look at the Origami explorations documented at the blog.
