Did you know that you can fold paper for a living?

Meet Cape Town local Ross Symons aka @white_onrice, a full time origami artist and renowned Instagrammer who had been creatively folding paper for a while when he decided he enjoyed it so much, he’d turn it into a career.

Origami literally means ‘folding paper’ and is an art form associated with the Japanese culture, although today the term is used throughout the world to describe the practice of transforming a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. Ross advocates for the art.

You’ll be able to meet him in a local coffee shop and learn more about his latest origami projects, as well as all things happening in and around Cape Town.

He runs effective campaigns and promotions for brands and private clients, does impressive origami commissions and installations as well as stop motion animations. His Instagram account - White on Rice - is where you will find his latest work, and you’re bound to fall in love with it.


Learn more about the ancient art that deserves to be recognised. Ross will also fold something for you to take home with you.
