Melanie Johns donated a colourful origami chicken to the Share-a Bird Project and also generously provided a set of simple instructions explaining how she made her origami bird.

Melanie suggests using origami to transform old artwork.  It’s an exciting way of using less successful drawings or paintings on paper to produce a new creative outcome, in the form of a personalised paper sculpture.
