Yukiko taught an origami lesson to three children, 8,10, and 12 years old. She was wonderful! She began with simple objects and moved to increasingly complicated creations as the kids caught on quickly through her patient and skillful instruction. She wore a kimono which they also loved, and really enjoyed their time with her. I'd highly recommend Yukiko to any family!

Wow we were all surprised at how easy it was to maneuver with a guide the first day. We booked two half days and asked all the questions we could so we could figure out what we wanted and how to move forward. Yokik...
