All thumbs when it comes to folded paper art? Here's a chance to get a handle on the craft: an origami home décor workshop, happening today from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory. Today's workshop is open to beginners and advanced students alike, says program coordinator Lauren Sammon. And if you're thinking this will be five hours of paper cranes, no way. Attendees will learn basic and advanced skills, and by workshop's end they'll have a bowl, a vase, a candle holder, coasters, napkin rings, and more — all made with their own hands. Leading the workshop will be Monica Salisbury, renowned paper artist and founder of Capital Area Paper Shapers. The class will set you back $105, but folks with a valid student ID get a $30 discount. Advance registration is required. — Munnell 1754 East 47th St.; 216-361-9255; morganconservatory.org.
