Saturday’s Origami workshop recognises that as we progress in our recovery it is very easy to become bogged down by the difficulties we face in our lives. In this workshop we will consider what it means to be in recovery, and through quiet interaction and the simple process of writing, discussion and paper folding, we will remember who we are and what we are doing. During the course of the day our pieces will be hung together for all to see.
