An Origami Installation

Standard Admission Applies

Retreat from the pre-Christmas rush at Kiplin Hall and Gardens this Winter. Enjoy a tranquil and beautiful display of origami doves and boats made from old maps. Kiplin Hall was built by George Calvert, who went on to found Maryland in the USA. Our paper creations are inspired by the two ships, The Ark and The Dove, which carried colonists from England to Maryland in 1632. Visitors will be able to make their own paper ornaments to take home or add to our display.

Seasonal refreshments will be served in the Tea Room to keep you warm and inspired. This is the final chance to see Kiplin Hall and Gardens this year before the winter closure. Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures. 

Use this video to learn how to make a paper dove and send it to us in the post so we can use it in our installation.
