1000 Cups of cranes - Week 51

Week 51

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

1 weeks to go... ONLY 21 cups to go, 42 cranes to fold and an entire exhibition to plan, organise and run!

As I am burning the almost midnight candle writing this I am half wishing I hadn't drank quite so much in week 51 as I have been rationing myself to a strict 3 cups a day for the last week so I can end up having the 1000th cup at 3pm on the Sunday the 11 of january at E for Ethel

You are all more than welcome to come and join me for this momentous occasion.

I am extremely torn about finishing this journey. It is a very strange and interesting thing to have been consciously counting, folding and recording my life via coffee, origami and photos for an entire year. I have been saying to Sean this week "What am I going to do with myself once this is over?" 

At the moment I do have the exhibition to plan, promote, organise, hang OH and a rather large number of cranes to fold, coffee cups to build, fire, decorate and fire again. I will  also be in residence at the exhibition on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights during the exhibition. On Saturday we have the origami mobile crane workshops - the link to the tickets are on the end of this post. So I think I will be ok as to what to do with my time. :)

It is all becoming very exciting that in 7 weeks my first solo exhibition will have been officially opened. I really do hope that a large number of crane get returned to the exhibition. The invitations will be arriving very soon to your inboxes, with instructions of what you need to do with your little crane (and what to do if you can not attend) I will also be very active on Social Media and in person at the Fringe Funhouse in Rundle Mall. 

And for the last time...

Until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition opening on the 27th of February and running until the 20th of March at Gallery One in Mitcham. Please Register your interest here.

If you have found one of these cranes please keep it until February 2015 when you will be asked to bring it to the exhibition opening night on the 27th of February (or during the exhibition closing on the 20th of March), register your email address HERE so I can send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. So your crane can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition. Also at the exhibition I will be running mobile crane making workshops. The tickets are now available to purchase through the fringe website.
