Turn your hand to origami

Inspired by our new exhibition On Paper we’ve been having some fun with paper. In the exhibition artists use paper in all kinds of ways, ripping it, burning it and sculpting it, so we decided to have a go at origami.

Why don’t you join us. All you need to make this origami dog are two square pieces of paper, then just copy what we do! Come down to Gallery Oldham this October half-term, take a look at the exhibition and have a go at crafting your own origami. Don’t forget to share your creations with us via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, #galleryoldham and @galleryoldham – we’d love to see them.

We have free family activities linked to our exhibitions taking place on Mon 28, Tues 29 and Wed 30 October from 1 – 4pm over October half-term. There is plenty going on for the kids, so why not call in?
