There are opportunities to download a selection of paper-toy making templates and to have a go at making the models below yourself from the programme website , with all four templates available from 1st October 2021.

As part of the project Cabinet of Curiosity delivered workshops during Darlington Arts Festival 2021 involving c 40 participants who made their own model of Darlington Clock Tower. If you’re visiting Darlington Library there are some of the paper-toy making templates printed onto card available alongside a display of the models which can be made.
