The BUTTERFLY PROJECT is an Interactive Installation Project - developed by visual artist TUNDE TOTH.
Inspired by workshops facilitated as part of the National Drawing Day events at the Butler Gallery in Kilkenny City in 2013, this programme is designed to take these workshops to a different level creating an ongoing, interactive, inclusive, participatory project `moving` between two venues and featured in two arts festivals in Co. Kilkenny. The project started at The Abhainn Ri Festival in Callan in July and continues at Tunde`s temporary exhibition space in Thomastown during the 40th Kilkenny Arts Festival.

Visitors and workshop participants are invited to contribute to the large scale, ongoing indoor/outdoor installation by making striking, colourful butterflies – using traditional Origami techniques, contemporary Silk Fibre Papermaking processes and plaster cloth sculpting/modelling.
