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 :)
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
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.
Now in Grand Rapids, MI
For those of you who have asked for a brick and mortar location to be able to purchase pieces from I'm happy to announce Tinygami's first retail location! A big thanks to Gallery 154 in Grand Rapids' "Eastown" for welcoming my tiny creations into their shop located at 1456 Lake DR SE, Grand Rapids, MI.
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. I hope I see you!
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.
Thank you to 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 buy the paper in tiny pieces or do I cut it down myself? Do my hands hurt? 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.
