Throughout January and February, Libraries have been decorating Halton with brightly coloured origami cranes. A symbol of hope and good fortune, what better way to start 2021? Japanese legend states that any individual who can create 1000 paper cranes will be granted a wish – how many can Halton residents make?!
You can get involved and help us to decorate Halton with your very own colourful origami cranes by joining us for a live workshop as part of MakeFest 21. We will take you through the basic techniques of origami in this step by step workshop where you will produce your very own origami creations to display in your windows at home to share the wishes of hope and good fortune. Let’s Decorate Halton together!
We will then move on to book folding, an art that has been around for centuries. We will guide you through the steps, showing you different examples and techniques, which will result in your own piece of book art.
This is a simple yet fun workshop!
