Solihull residents–you can work with friends, family, solo or with online participants. This is an adult-only session, perfect for ages 16+.

What is Unfolding Stories about? 

It’s a community project encouraging reading, talking and sharing. We’ll explore stories or fragments of texts/words through origami creations–and while we fold and unfold, tuck and crease, we’ll be creating story sculptures–as if by magic! 

You will need:

  • Paper – you can use photocopying paper/magazine pages or you can request a resource pack when you book. To make the origami horse (above), use 210 x 210mm paper,  but please don’t feel restricted– we would love to see unique story sculptures!;
  • Worksheet/some paper to note ideas (downloadable worksheets available); 
  • Pencil to write/draw with.

Support and Guidance–online workshops are live and we’re here to help

If you send a photo of your sculpted story structure to  we’ll include it in a Library window display.


Unfolding Stories is part of Reading Friends, a Reading agency initiative. The Solihull Reading Friends programme is a collaboration between Solihull Libraries , The Core Theatre Solihull and Art at the Heart CIC. The aim of Reading Friends is to start conversations and connect people who are lonely and isolated. We are delighted to offer a varied programme including other events such as Storytime LIVE, Sohan's Storytime and Have I got Local History News For You!.
