Chinese Origami, Zhezhi - Folding A Lotus Flower
Our Petals of Peace origami folding workshop is a fun and interesting activity that is a symbol of hope and solidarity.
The 'Petals of Peace' project invites children, and people of all ages to fold a paper lotus flower as a gesture of peace and friendship to children less fortunate. The lotus flowers are symbolic of 'Petals of Peace' blossoming within our local community and throughout the world.
This global project is a tangible way that participants can examine their own values and ideals to promote a more peaceful world. Petals of Peace aims to encourage tolerance towards cultural diversity and compassion for the suffering of others. It is symbolic of extending the hand of friendship to other innocent children less fortunate, like little Fadu. (See more of their story here)
