‘The Adventures of Flopsy Hop The Rabbit in Origami Wonderland’ a children’s storybook written & illustrated by George Dempsey - an artist and craft maker based in Offaly.
I have been working & creating with Origami for the last 4 years, making craft products, art pieces, installations as well as teaching workshops. In that time and through my work with local events, school projects and festivals I have become very passionate about sharing with people the magic of making something with your own hands and inspiring the imagination.
This will be my first children’s storybook inspired by my Origami creations - a world I have created called Origami Wonderland and the characters who live there, “The Whimsy’s”
Along with this book I will also be producing an Origami paper craft pack - where children can learn how to make pieces that appear in the story and in turn make their very own little Origami world.
This book and craft pack will not only inspire children, but also introduce them to the joy of making and creating using their hands and imaginations.
With your help I will be able to begin what I plan will be a series of books and craft packs for primary school children - the book will be aimed at children aged 5-8 ish! and the pack for children aged 6+
You can follow updates, see pictures of some of the rewards and sneak peeks of how this project is progressing on my facebook page ...
How your support can help my dream come true....
Money raised will allow me to produce & print 1000 books and 500 craft packs, as well as help me to promote the launch of this project. All rewards will be received 10 - 7 days before the official public launch of the book and craft pack which will be taking place during Birr Vintage Week & Arts Festival July 31st - August 7th.
