HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING NEXT
I'll be posting my latest updates here on Tinygami's home page announcing future events and new products. So check back whenever you're wondering what I'm up to and where I may be next. 2017 is going to be a tremendous year of growth for my fledging company as I begin to spread my (origami paper) wings around West Michigan :)
Avenue for the Arts' annual "Art.Downtown" event
"What does it mean to be American? ...especially in a political climate of anti culture/color/immigrant." Now you can virtually view all three pieces from this exhibit along with my artist's statement on the Tinygami Blog. CLICK HERE to view.
I was thrilled to be invited to present an origami workshop at the inaugural Grand Rapids Asian Festival this summer. It's a chance for me to give back and share some of my culturural heritage with the people of West Michigan. For updates on this event you can join the Facebook Group at the link in the title above.
NEW ORIGAMI JEWELRY
New glass cloche necklaces are now available in the Tinygami Etsy shop. Currently some styles are sold out. If you click the "Sales" link in the lefthand sidebar (in the Etsy shop) it will show more designs that can be special ordered. I am also open to creating a custom design that would be the most meaningful to you
NOW IN GREENVILLE, MI
For those of you who have asked for brick and mortar locations to be able to purchase Tinygamis I'm happy to announce my second retail location! You can now find this display at Home 2 Home right in downtown Greenville located at 310 Lafayette ST. where the Springrove Variety used to be located. Open
7 days a week.
It's here! The collaborative origami book I am part of has arrived! I received an advance copy in the mail. My featured section about miniature origami includes three tutorials consisting of a lidded box, water lily, and traditional crane. If you're interested "Creative Origami and Beyond" is available now and can be ordered online.
OUT AND ABOUT WEST MICHIGAN
Tinygami will be participating in the May 27th and July 22nd Made in Michigan Pop-Up Marketplace events in downtown Grand Rapids. I'll be bringing a wide variety of the Tinygami products available in my Etsy shop and possibly my tiny travel trailer "The Glampette" to haul everything there.
Thank you CraftSanity and 97.9 WGRD for the interviews at ArtPrize8
View a gallery of images for each mobile including a description of its theme, size (most are approximately 8" in diameter and 24"-31" high), the materials it's comprised of, and photo build journals that show my step by step process.
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.
