Folding for Chinese New Year

Our Art Department are already getting ready for the Chinese New Year!

Pagoda Arts are a local organisation who introduce and celebrate Chinese Culture in Merseyside and beyond. This year, Pagoda Arts are creating a huge Pigsy – to celebrate the year of the pig. They have 50,000 red money envelopes recycled and shipped from Hong Kong’s 2018 New Year celebrations. Our Keystage 3 students are all learning the art of paper folding whilst helping Pagode create an amazing piece of public art.

Try and make some yourself! There are five different items to be made: Lantern, Dog, Fish (two types) & a Pig. All guides are available via Pagoda Arts youtube:
