Origami Cranes Workshop

Monroe Lake will host an origami cranes craft workshop for adults at Paynetown State Recreation Area (4850 S. State Road 446, Bloomington) on Friday, February 24 at 10:00 a.m., in conjunction with the International Crane Foundation (ICF).

This free, 90-minute workshop is limited to 14 people, ages 16 and up. Registration is required by February 21 at http://bit.ly/origamicranes2023.

Cranes have both fascinated and mystified people around the world for hundreds of years. For this reason, they are often at the core of legends and stories and carry significant cultural importance.

Following a short presentation about cranes in culture, Katelyn Garrett with the ICF will lead an origami crane folding activity. Participants will learn how to fold origami cranes and assemble them into a decorative chain.

Entrance to Paynetown SRA is free during the winter season. Questions about the workshop should be directed to Jill Vance, Monroe Lake’s interpretive naturalist, at jvance@dnr.in.gov.
