Arkirnar sléttar og felldar – Enjoying Origami

OrigamiAssiaBrill2013

ARKIRNAR fjórar sem mættu á námskeið hjá origami-listamönnunum Dave og Assia Brill  í Menningarmiðstöðinni Gerðubergi um síðustu helgi verða nú að játa á sig æði mörg brot. Námskeiðið var tveggja daga öflugt grunnnámskeið þar sem nemendur sátu einbeittir frá morgni til kvölds við að brjóta pappírinn rétt og rækilega. Kennararnir voru engir aukvisar í faginu: þau hjónin hafa stundað origami listina í árafjöld, með ótal sýningar og viðurkenningar að baki.

Í Gerðubergi stendur yfir stórgóð sýning á verkum þeirra og einnig nokkurra félaga í Origami Ísland. Sýningin stendur til 24. mars.

The four of us ARKIR who were lucky enough to take part in a two-days intensive Origami course at Gerðuberg Culture Center last weekend had a great time folding paper and learning to understand the art of origami. Teachers Dave and Assia Brill were admirably patient and thorough in their instructions as they lectured us in basic origami folding.

An ongoing exhibition at Gerðuberg gives a view on their art: beautiful and clever designs and amazing sculptures. Go see their art and also origami by members of Origami Iceland at Gerðuberg Culture Center! Exhibition’s last date: March 24.
