Message from Mariela

My name is Mariela. I am originally from El Salvador but I live in Canada. I had the pleasure to live in Japan for almost 20 years. I fell in love with origami in my beloved Nagasaki. I learned a lot about origami there, and I knew about Shoko san’s designs. I loved them immediately. She has such wonderful designs. All of them are lovely and extremely cute. I have a Youtube channel called Origami Maniacs. I share origami tutorials. I have asked Shoko san many times for permission to make tutorials of some of her work, and she has accepted so kindly. My tutorials are used to teach seniors and children. They love Shoko san’s designs. I had the honour to have an Instagram live with Shoko san. We had a wonderful time with Shoko san who shared a lot about origami and Japanese culture. People around the world love her work and lovely designs. Thank you for your kindness dear Shoko san.
With love from Canada

Hi there,

I hope you are doing well during this difficult time.
It is very hard to live without origami classes, libraries, museums, concerts, theaters, sport clubs, travel, eating out ...etc.
However, we have plenty of free time now, so it's time to do whatever we were not able to do before.
It is very important to stay at home at the moment in order to avoid getting infected with COVID-19. We will get through this together. Endless nights don't exist!
This is a origami rabbit I made especially for this difficult period we are going through.
It is wearing a mask to battle the coronavirus.
