Willow lantern workshop kit



I love making lanterns and I often run lantern-making workshops for lots of different organisations so I thought that it might be nice to offer this as a fun activity to do at home its such a great activity to do especially in the autumn and winter months where you can then go outside and enjoy your new creationI

You will have the choice to make a variety of lantern from the traditional; pyramid, ball, or box and stars all the way through to a ginger bread house or snowman , the shapes can easily be decorated and adapted in so many different ways to suit a variety of themes and purposes

You will need to have reasonable hand dexterity or an assistant to help with the tricky bits.


Please note that this workshop is not suitable for young children to do on their own as you will need to cut the willow with secateurs

If you need the materials to be sent out quickly, please contact me before ordering it to check that I am available to send it to you will need to also allow for delivery time

Please let me know which activity you wish to do and if you have a colour theme preference for the tissue when you place the order if it different to the listed items

If you wish to cancel your order and the kit has been sent out you must return the kit unused and at your own expense before the refund will be authorised.

I will send out a kit which includes enough materials to make 2 small lanterns or one larger one the tissue included will be a mixture of white and mix of coloured wet strength lantern paper, instructions and materials, willow, tape, sponge and LED lights, and paper instructions and a pair of children's size scissors
