While everybody knows what story telling is, Origami might not be familiar to you. It is the traditional Japanese art of folding paper – and with Latha's help, her fantastic stories, and last but not the least, the endless supplies of paper in all colours of the rainbow will ensure there are no limits to your imagination.

With some really colourful origami exhibits displayed in the background, children will not only get to create origami models but will also be encouraged to come up with stories of their own. The workshop will aim at tapping the child’s creativity and concentration like no other. It's going to be a session of colour, creativity and concentration.

Latha Subramaniam, a master of origami as well as of story-telling, is a firm believer of the maxim. "Every child must be treated like an adult and be given due importance". With her stories and colourful paper art, she communicates with children in a unique way every child understands. Visit her workshop and get creative! Enjoy the colourful world of story-origami and go home with some colourful pieces of art in your pocket!

On November 13, 2011, on the eve of Children’s Day in India, the first model library for children and youth was launched in Chennai. The Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan and "The HippocampusChildren’s Company" had instituted a partnership to create a model public library for children, which will enable younger generations to access knowledge and discover the pleasure of reading in an enjoyable environment.
