Whipsnade Zoo - Origami Elephant World Record Attempt. - I will be participating and adjudicating this record attempt!

ZSL aims to break the World Record for the most origami elephants made and displayed,
to help raise awareness of the rapidly declining number of Asian elephants left in the wild. It’s a jumbo challenge and we need YOUR help.

We aim to trample the current record of 1,500 and create a display of 30,000 elephants,
one to represent each of the Asian elephants left in the wild (International Elephant Foundation, 2014).
So grab a piece of origami paper*, follow one of our templates below and help us set a new record.

All elephants should be sent to:
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
Whipsnade
Dunstable
Bedfordshire
LU6 2LF

Alternatively if you are visiting the zoo you can pop them in the designated boxes in the Wild Bite café and main shop.
Happy folding!

THANK YOU!

The official counting of the elephants is taking place on ZSL’s annual ELEPHANTASTIC weekend 20th-21st September.
Come on down to the elephant barn to help us make our last few elephants and hopefully celebrate our new title!
There will be a link on our ZSL website after the event, where participants can purchase their certificate of participation.

South Bank Centre - 2 hour origami workshop for the team working on the show called "FOLDS"


FOLDS
Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room, 17 – 31 December 2013
Circus, live music, crazy contraptions and paper take over Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room this Christmas in Folds, a show by Spanish theatre company Enfila’t.
The witty and heart-warming family show comes to London as part of Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival.
Paper lies at the heart of the production and is the inspiration behind the performance, from acrobatics in a cardboard box to tight-rope walking on a line made of twisted brown paper; it even serves as a tasty snack when the cast get hungry. The performers dance, spin, fold and unfold themselves through this madcap world of paper, and also perform daring tricks on a precarious rocking-frame apparatus.
The award-winning international company comprises some of Europe’s finest circus acrobats. The four performers combine their circus-skills with performing live music. Between them they play a range of instruments, including keyboard, double bass, accordion and trombone, as well as making music with more unconventional sources including scissors, sellotape and, of course, paper.
