Cranes, cranes and plenty of them! Look! Oh, and there are plenty more to come...
These colourful cranes have been patiently made by Sophie, as I can recall she said she made at least 800 (or more) of these beauties (a meaning of good luck)! Origami is not really my best of areas (Beverly) but I'm willing to attempt the templates that Sophie provided in a previous post, and also to test my patience!
Relating to our topic on heirlooms and trinketry... origami could be said to be a 'heirloom' as it is a tradition of paper-folding, where the knowledge and skill has been passed through generations. An heirloom is something that has been passed through generations to reflect on our histories or treasuring something sentimental within a family.
There's even teeny tiny origami swallows, parrots and cranes!
This is all exciting! We are planning to fill this vending machine with origami creatures which will then be installed in a particular area around Leeds College of Art. Hopefully the library if we can get permission.
It's 20p per capsule, so grab your origami bird which has been made with LOVE!
