ORIGAMI artist Sanny Ang has set his sights on teaching every Australian how to make his original aeroplane through his ‘Storigami’ classes.
The Sorrento resident, who moved from Singapore to Perth in 1989, has been making origami since his dad taught him as a five-year-old.
After watching a news bulletin about the Gulf War in 1991, where a presenter said some aeroplanes would never return home from war, he created his original aeroplane called Zommerang, which came back in a circle.
He will be holding his second free workshop in the City of Bayswater this year at Bayswater Library on March 28 from 4pm to 5pm.
Mr Ang said conducting his ‘Storigami’ workshops, where he told stories and taught people how to make origami, was what he liked to do best.
“If we get people who have not done origami before, then we have to do basic models if they have done a few classes with me before, then we will go to the next level – I have got about 12 different levels,” he said.
Mr Ang said he wanted to continue making origami based on more than 280 drawings of things he saw in his daily life.
“Even with all the years of origami I have done and the amount of knowledge I have, it is like a grain of sand on the beach,” he said.
“Because, I know how to make three different elephants and there are more than 400 different ways of making an elephant that I have not learned yet.
“I am hoping to get to more libraries and teach more classes…I’d like to be able to teach every Australian how to make an aeroplane that comes back.”
