Beautiful origami butterflies around The Olympia Cafe in Kalk Bay.

From Social media's made the ancient art of paper-folding trendy (timeslive.co.za):
Cape Town-based public artist and yoga teacher Sanae Sawada uses origami in her installations and her art outreach project called The Butterfly Guild. She calls origami meditation and is convinced of its therapeutic effects.
Sawada's installations often include hundreds of folded butterflies concentrated and also scattered for visual effect. There's delicacy in an individual butterfly, then wonder and awe at the scale of her installations.

"We teach origami in prisons and to children in underprivileged communities. We use a philosophy of teaching someone to teach someone else. It's empowering and joyful," says Sawada.

Her butterfly art is her innovation. Hundreds of her origami butterflies can be spotted in Kalk Bay, including the Olympia Café on Main Road. Beautifully coloured recycled paper (orizome method) inspires warmth and life.
