Crane Workshop

Legend has it that if you fold a thousand origami cranes, you would be granted a wish. This legend inspired Sadako Sasaki, whose hopes and efforts led to the traditional crane being known as a symbol of peace, and subsequently, one of the most recognized symbols of origami.

Hi folders,

This week, we’re featuring the traditional cranes, along with a few other variations. The workshop will be happening this 📆Friday, Feb 3, from ⌚4:30 – 6:30 PM, at 📌SS1086 (Sidney Smith Hall). Paper will be provided, and no registration or fee is required. Join us whenever, and leave at your leisure (or at the end of the wo😉).

Featured models:

Note: Due to the length of the Kamiya crane diagrams, a very limited number of the diagrams for this model will be printed(though a pdf will be available on our Discord). The diagrams will be provided upon request to participants who have completed the celebration crane and rose crane.
