We're making origami from 2-3:00 Tuesday through Friday during vacation week as part of the Peace Cranes to Washington Project (although we'll also be offering simpler origami patterns for those who don't feel like tackling a crane). The cranes will stay here and be displayed here for a short time before being sent to Washington to coincide with Martin Luther King Jr Day.
