British Science Week

I recently ran some sessions as part of British Science Week, in a venue called the Inman Pavilion, in Stocksbridge. The sessions included;

Sunday March 13th 10.00am – 12.00: Introductory workshop – A guide to origami for complete beginners, focussing on interesting designs, folding techniques and exploring your creativity.

1.00pm – 3.00pm: Introductory workshop – As above

Thursday March 17th 5.00pm – 6.00pm: Short workshop for children and carers
A selection of simple designs aimed at younger folders. The idea is for parents/carers to fold alongside children and enjoy being creative together.

6.30pm – 8.30pm: Workshop for those working with people of all ages and abilities in education, leisure, play, therapy or anyone who might want to add a low-cost, stimulating activity to their repertoire. Lots of ideas about how to include origami in your workplace.

There was a good mixture of children and adults and we had a great deal of fun. The models were slanted to illustrate some mathematical concepts, for example 45 and 60 degree protractors.

Many thanks to the indefatigable Beryl Sharp for organising this so well.
