The Origami Poems Project is thrilled to have been part of the Hebden Bridge's summer 2017 Arts festival. The palm-sized microchaps were made available at this multi-faceted gathering during the event from 23rd June to 2nd July and beyond.
Teacher, compere, performer and poet, Winston Plowes spends his days fine-tuning background noise and rescuing discarded words. Furthermore, the poet lives in a floating home in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire UK!
We received an email in March from Assistant Troop Leader, Jennifer Basile. Jennifer and her daughters had visited the Origami Poems display ('manned' by Lynnie Gobeille) at the Charlestown Farmers' Market! She asked the OPP for help with the cadettes' Book Artist Badge.
The four girls working on the badge wrote a total of 6 poems about scouting and drew a cover! We hope this helps them get their badge. Please send us a photo when you do!
My first involvement with BioBlitz was in 2006 as an environmental educator. Kira Stillwell, a RI Natural History Survey organizer, asked if I’d lead a children’s poetry workshop. I wanted to use poetry to connect people with nature; this was a perfect opportunity.
