Origami Penguins for Families

with Kathleen Sheridan
Saturday, November 28; 10am–12pm CST
For families with children ages 4 and up

This origami workshop for families is perfect for approaching winter fun. First, Kathleen will introduce you to Little Penguins, a book about exploring winter, and then she’ll guide you through making two different origami penguins! You can create multiple penguins for use on a garland, grow or shrink the penguins using different paper sizes, or dress them up to represent characters from the book or your life! Great for families. Children ten and younger will need adult assistance.

$35 per adult/child pair; additional children in household participate for free
$15 per BIPOC adult/child pair; additional children in household participate for free
*We are offering a reduced rate to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participants to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom this does not apply, register at the rate listed first and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make reduced rates available.

What you’ll need to participate: For this participatory virtual workshop we recommend you join on a laptop or desktop computer with a microphone, if possible. A camera is optional. You will receive step-by-step instructions for downloading Zoom (it’s free!) and accessing the workshop online approximately 2 days before the workshop’s start date. You are responsible for sourcing your own supplies from the materials list. Teaching artists will answer questions about the materials list in advance of the workshop.

Please note: Registration closes 11/22 at midnight.
