ArtPrize 10
Sept 19th - October 7th 2018

My entry this year is my first canvas in decades. Titled “Kintsugi Heart” it is a reminder that we can heal from heartbreak in a way that leaves us more beautiful and interesting when we’re willing to confront, process, and learn from the hardship that broke us. At the Grand Central Market and Deli at 57 Monroe Center NW, Grand Rapids, MI.

ORIGAMI FOLDING CLUB
Established in June 2017 West Michigan Origami is a folding club (similar to a knitting club, but with paper). There is an official Facebook Group Page and/or an official web page on this website. Join either for notifications of upcoming meetups. Recommended ages are 8 and up. All experience levels are welcome. Bring a project you're working on or come learn. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.


Thank you 60 Second docs, CraftSanity, and 97.9 WGRD

The 60 seconds that changed everything: Michigan origami artist Stacie Tamaki is an expert at crafting tiny origami -- so much so that she's made a full-time career out of it. For her, it's not just a job, but also a lifestyle. Every year, she presents her miniatures at the Grand Central Market & Deli in Michigan, and fans can purchase her art on etsy.

 

This is Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood's interview with Stacie Tamaki, creator of Tinygami at ArtPrize 2016. The artwork is at Grand Central Market & Deli in Grand Rapids.

By WGRD 97.9 Matt Milhouse: Stacie Tamaki brought miniature origami to Grand Central Market & Deli in Grand Rapids for the third straight year for ArtPrize. Watch as Tamaki demonstrates how she makes "Tinygami" and offers tips for beginners. 


FAQ's

What kind of paper do I use? Where do I get my paper? Do I cut my paper into tiny pieces or buy it that small? These are the questions I've now been asked thousands of times. Since they are pretty consistent I thought I’d compile them together into an FAQ blog post.
