ECHO is launching a new series of interactive online workshops as part of the ECHO Happiness Hub, focusing on wellbeing, creativity, learning and self-care.
Each 30 minute session will be led by a creative professional encouraging you and your families to enjoy a new experience – join to take part for some relaxation and to learn skills in origami making, drawing and the art of listening and sound!
These workshops are hosted in partnership with our friends at the Centre for Medical Engineering at King’s College London and later in the series we will be joined by some scientists to hear about their work.
All workshops will be streamed live on ECHO’s Facebook and YouTube, so you will not need to switch on your own camera at any time. You are welcome to interact during live sessions by using the chat feature to write any questions or feedback. All sessions will be available to watch any time after the livestream.
Event dates: 19 Jan, 26 Jan, 2 Feb, 9 Feb, 16 Feb, 23 Feb, 2 March, 9 March, 16 March, 23 March, 30 March, 6 April 2021
Workshop 1: Fold a Heart Origami with Lizzie
Lizzie will be sharing the beautiful art of paper folding (origami). An everyday piece of paper can be transformed into something beautiful through adding a series of folds, bringing us on a journey to make something remarkable. Join Lizzie to go slowly, and enjoy finding yourself completely focused on creating something special. Lizzie is originally a scientist, and much of her work combines science and art, and is also known as paper engineering. Lizzie will share origami folds to help support wellbeing and encourage creativity.
Materials required? All you need is a few pieces of paper of any size.
