Join artist Kathy Hinde at Fort Amherst in the cafe to make thousands of origami birds. These will be used in her fascinating installation Twittering Machines in the Gate House during the festival weekend (20-22 June) which will be a sonic and visual combination of bird-song imitation machines fashioned from old morse code keys, twittering mechanised music boxes, a rustling cloud of paper birds twitching overhead, a 78rpm recording of nightingales with a cello, or the echo of Lancaster bombers.
