Join us for an arty origami lesson to create interesting shapes using colourful paper inspired by Maser’s origami masterpiece featured in the exhibition with a special focus on Seamus Heaney’s poem ‘The Flight Path’ where a boy is mesmerized by his father’s ability to masterfully fold a piece of paper into a boat.
