Decorate Halton: Mass Make

Throughout January and into February, we will be decorating Halton with brightly coloured origami cranes. A symbol of hope and good fortune, what better way to start 2021? Japanese legend states that any individual who can create 1000 paper cranes will be granted a wish – how many can Halton residents make?!

You can get involved by collecting your origami art pack from Halton Lea and Widnes Libraries through our Click & Collect service from Monday 18th January to Friday 12th February – they contain full instructions on how to create your origami crane and origami paper so you can get started at home. Display your cranes in your windows at home to share the wishes of hope and good fortune.

You can still join in without picking up a Decorate Halton pack. Full instructional videos will be available on Halton libraries social media channels and website., all you need is some paper! Why not decorate your paper first before folding? Don’t forget to  hang your crane in your window and share a picture with us!

Share your cranes by tagging @HaltonLibraries and #DecorateHalton
