A thousand paper cranes

Learn about the traditional Japanese art of origami and have a go yourself at a workshop to celebrate the final day of the Stanley Audrey and Burton Gallery’s ‘Paper Trails’ exhibition.

Linette Withers will lead the afternoon where you can learn how to make the famous paper crane amongst other birds and animals which will be added to the Gallery’s interactive sculpture and photographed as a collective artwork.

The workshop also ties in nicely with annual Japanese holiday Obon which sees paper cranes placed in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park each July as a tribute to departed ancestors and as a symbol of peace.

On: Saturday 28 July

At: 2-4pm

In: The Stanley Audrey and Burton Gallery

The workshop is free but places are limited so please book in advance by email, phone (32778) or online.
