If you've enjoyed the origami articles on Plus and live in or near London, then here's your chance to see some origami live. The Japan Foundation has invited Toshikazu Kawasaki, creator of the Kawasaki rose, to give a special talk on 27 August 2013. Kawasaki, a renowned origami theorist and maths teacher by profession, will talk about his approach to the paper craft with actual origami demonstrations. His talk will also explore his role as an origami master and how his passion for origami and maths led him to become the world's first doctor of origami. During the talk the audience can also put their origami skills to the test with the instruction of Kawasaki.

The event will take place at The Japan Foundation, Russell Square House, 10-12 Russell Square, London WC1B 5EH. It's free but booking is essential. To reserve a place, please email your name and the title of the event to event@jpf.org.uk.
