Join in the making of 1200 origami cranes for an art installation

Be part of the largest community arts project in RBKC which involves 1200 origami cranes, 600 hours and nearly half a kilometre of string. Kindred Artist Studios in collaboration with the Dalgarno Trust is inviting all of us, any age, to a free workshop, on the weekend of 25-26th of June, to make a cc22f7f1-640d-4a49-9ad0-d8005504caee_xlarge_group-photo-for-shcolossal 3 x 5 metre mobile installation of origami cranes that will be suspended in the atrium of the Dalgarno Trust. Artist and organiser Jaime Turner says:  “The cranes embody the natural and beautiful migration of people, a theme that echoes the multicultural nature of The Dalgarno Trust whose facilities are used by 1,400 people each week, including 400 unique young people that access its youth services.” The nature of the process is also symbolic, as members of the public will sit at long tables in the studio courtyard, get shown how to fold the cranes and pass the knowledge to their neighbour. “The transference of knowledge and communal aspect of the process is part of the concept that underpins the installation,” says Turner.
