Could there be a better match of neighborhood and business than Park Slope’s new origami studio? Taro’s is a soothing, light-filled, second-floor atelier completely devoted to the Japanese art of paper-folding, with materials displayed by color on the walls. The better for concentrating; it’s amazing how quietly busy kids get at the work tables. Creations here range from simple (a frog) to rococo (a dragon) and are taught via computer tablets that walk little fingers through each step while staffers check on their progress. Private and group classes are available, but plenty of customers drop in, too. (Taro’s charges $10 for a half-hour and three sheets of origami paper. You can also schedule a two-hour, fifteen-person birthday party for $450.)”
