Lethal Japanese paper-folding prisoners
October 19, 2007

Wanted Origami instructions/materials I am doing some work in a prison chaplaincy with female prisoners and am planning on doing some origami with them. It is a great craft to do with them because it doesn’t require the use of banned items – scissors, glue etc.

I have a small booklet already but I wondered if anyone had any instructions for fairly simple origami projects that they might be able to offer me. Also, if anyone has some origami paper going spare it would be much appreciated.

Snails 2.0 : Still need a home (but not just any home)
October 16, 2007

Free to good homes,baby Giant African Land Snails(BD20) Hi there,
I have some 1 month old Giant African Land Snails,that I need to
I’m afraid i won’t be re-homing them to under 16’s.These animals need
a lot of care and attention and each person that re-homes them will be
given a care sheet with the information needed to care for them properly.
They can reach upto 4-6 inches in size so adequate space will be
needed for them as they grow,and it is possible for them to live upto
6-8 years.

We are sure these are related to this lot

interest to anyone who’s into natural weaving & dying).
