We’ve got a very special giveaway for you today!

When Yuka of zakka box announced an origami class last week, it was booked out within 2 hours time! Due to this, she is holding a second class later that day, and we are very lucky to have TWO spots to give away.

Happening on Monday October 17 from 1:30 – 3 pm, you’ll be taught the old tradition of origami by Mrs Hashimoto. Born in the 1920s, she had her own craft class in Japan for 30 years, after which she taught at Hyogo Cultural Centre in Perth. The class will be held at zakka box at 611 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post telling us why origami tickles your fancy, and let us know whether you’d like one or two spots to the class, in case you’d like to surprise your friend! The giveaway closes at midnight tonight, winners will be drawn out of a hat, and be announced tomorrow morning.

Good luck!

And the winners are… Melinda and Alia! You’ve each scored yourself a spot in the origami class, well done! A big thanks to everyone else who entered too!

Yuka of zakka box will be in contact with you soon, so keep your eyes on your inbox.


  • I love the ceremony associated with traditional Japanese crafts. It’is not just about doing craft, it’s almost ritual like and carries a peacefulness about it. I think my son and I could use that right now. We’d love to win a couple of places in the class.

  • Oragami is awesome!
    I learnt how to make a chicken that lays an egg…
    I put another chicken in the egg and so on… it was like a bubushka doll but with chickens!
    So I mailed it to a friend and she was so happy!
    Every time I make something, no matter how simple, it always brightens up peoples days.

  • I love the clean simplicity of Japanese craft. Using simple techniques to make beautiful things. Would love just one spot on this class. I have three girls and I would love to show them a few origami things.

  • My three children (1 girl, 2 boys) love origami and are busy making and filling a jar full of colourful paper cranes for the ‘Lucky Jar’ stall at their school fete. I would love to come along to the workshop with oneof my children and learn something new.

  • I used to be a teacher and taught my students how to make origami paper cranes, which we sent to Hiroshima for Peace Day. I’d love to learn how to make other forms of origami as well as currently I can only do the cranes. I’d love to win tickets to the lesson, please. 🙂
