To recycle our paper waste we at Migrate Art have decided to print folding instructions to make origami cranes.
The crane is considered a symbol of peace in Japan and has long been regarded to bring good fortune. The tradition dates back to the Heian Era (794 to 1185). Over time, people started folding paper cranes and giving them away as gestures to express their prayers for peace, happiness and good luck.
We at Migrate Art wanted to use our paper waste as a means to spread peace around the world. The paper waste for the cranes are test prints from our Raising for Myanmar project.
Please see this instructional video below to help you fold your crane.
