THE CONFAB WITH MICHAEL G IN CONVERSATION WITH THE OWNERS OF FOCUS FOLDING
Jesse has been folding origami since he was 6 years old. He finds that it is a great meditative practice.In 2018, Rowan entered Jesse's life. Seeing Jesse make tiny origami, Rowan challenged him to make 2 small pieces of origami that she would turn into a pair of earrings. The result were a pair of cubes made out of pink printer paper. Rowan varnished them and turned them into earrings. She still wears them today, 4 years later.In 2020, the first lockdown in Canberra, Australia, saw Jesse out of work. He got impatient not being able to work and so turned to Rowan and asked if they could try make a business making origami jewellery, like the pink cube earrings they had made. Rowan agreed.Now in 2023, this couple have celebrated Focus Folding's 3rd birthday! They are still going strong and regularly attend markets in Canberra.Join me on the Confab to hear their life journey and passions.
