An amazing hobby: origami/Удивительное хобби:оригами.

During this month my pupils and I have not only improved our English but also payed our attention to an amazing hobby - origami.
Origami (折り紙, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku) is the traditional Japaneseart of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. Paper cutting and gluing is usually consideredkirigami.
The number of basic origami folds is small, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. The best known origami model is probably the Japanese paper crane. In general, these designs begin with a square sheet of paper whose sides may be different colors or prints. Traditional Japanese origami, which has been practiced since the Edo era (1603–1867), has often been less strict about these conventions, sometimes cutting the paper or using nonsquare shapes to start with.(Wikipedia)
Here are some of my works:

It's an amazing thing when a simple sheet of paper turns into a wonderful flower or creature. 
My pupils and I want to thanks Reshetnyova Elena Vladimirovna for practical lessons.
