About Origami Peace Cranes making workshop with Shoji Masuzawa

Mark the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima by joining Edinburgh Peace & Justice Centre’s member Shoji Masuzawa and his young assistant Magnus Byrne in an origami peace crane making and storytelling workshop suitable for 7 to 75+ year olds.

This show and tell workshop is dedicated to Sadako Sasaki (1943-1955) and Atsuko Betchaku (1960-2016) who have inspired Peace Cranes – Edinburgh Peace & Justice Centre’s forthcoming exhibition of international contemporary art exploring the cultural legacy of Hiroshima. Find out more about these inspiring women and their life-affirming act of folding origami paper cranes from the Peace Cranes exhibition curators Iliyana Nedkova and Heather Kiernan.

Learn to make origami peace cranes and become a Peace Cranes exhibition supporter. All you need to join us online is some paper and a flat folding surface. Origami paper is ideal, as it is thin, strong, and folds well, but you can use any paper you have to hand. It just needs to be a perfect square, and should measure at least 5 inches by 5 inches.

This is a free event, but if you are able to donate we are asking supporters to donate £14 or any amount you can afford. We will ensure that you are acknowledged as a supporter of the Peace Cranes exhibition of international contemporary art in 2021 which will also feature an artist’s installation of the 140,000 origami paper peace cranes folded by Atsuko and hundreds of other volunteers like her from over five countries who have contributed to this initiative led by us at Edinburgh Peace & Justice Centre since 2015.

For 7 to 75 year olds.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Origami Peace Cranes making workshop with Shoji Masuzawa are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
