  • Be inspired, and make Butterfly origami

Come and have a chat with other students about your feelings for the term ahead, discuss your plans and goals for the upcoming term and the rest of your student journey. Also, have a go at some origami! All you will need is a square of paper. Butterflies have long been associated as symbolic of change and transformation so we’ll be learning how to make an origami butterfly.
