Folding for Japan

Fold for Japan!

So What Is It?

We're holding a timed origami challenge - one hour for as many volunteers as possible to fold as many cranes as possible. This is a test of skill and dexterity.

Who Is It?

The event itself is being organised by the Fold For Peace origami group, who makes origami cranes for the Hiroshima/Nagasaki memorial in Leeds, and hold origami workshops throughout the year.

Anyone can join in. We'll be holding a workshop beforehand to teach people how to make cranes, and there will be worksheets available. Anyone who wants to have a go and add to the total is welcome.

When Is It?

Fold For Japan will be held at the Corn Exchange in Leeds on Saturday 16th April, with the origami challenge hour starting at 2pm.

How Will It Raise Money?

We're raising money for the The Red Cross. We will be being sponsored for our timed origami challenge. If you'd like to sponsor us you can donate at our JustGiving page, or by contacting us direct. We'll also have donation buckets available on the day, and after the cranes have been counted up you can take one home for a donation.

How Can You Get Involved?

Want to learn how to make a crane? Want to test your origami limits? Have a yearning to shake a bucket of loose change? Get in touch - we'd love to have you involved.

If you'd like to display a poster, or can help promote the event, please contact us at

If you want to cheer us on please tell everyone you know to come to the Corn Exchange between 2-3pm on 16th April.

Thanks for reading - together we can really make a difference. Let the fun (un)fold!
