Spring Lantern workshop

Arts Centre, Bideford

Who is this course for?

The lantern workshop is aimed at families and individuals who would like to learn how to make a lantern from withy and tissue paper.   

Course content

You will be designing and making a lantern using withy and tissue paper, you will decide how complicated you want your lantern to be; very young children will make simple 3D shape lanterns but it is possible to make your lantern ship shape.  Please remember the more complicated your lantern the longer the build time will be so while you might make a good start you may have to finish your lantern at home. 

Support and feedback

Your tutor will demonstrate the basic techniques at the start of the session and will be on hand to give guidance and support throughout the session. 

Additional costs and requirements

You do not need to bring anything with you, you may want to do some research prior to the workshop so you come prepared with some ideas.  Laptops will be available on the day to enable you to carry out research and gain inspiration. 

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

No, but you will be working with PVA glue so an apron or overall would be useful to protect your clothes.
