I love making lanterns and I often run lantern-making workshops for lots of different places so I thought that it might be nice to offer this as a fun activity to do at home. I offer a range of kits
You will have the choice to make a variety of lanterns from the traditional; Pyramid, ball, or box and stars, which can be adapted to suit a variety of themes.
The workshop is suitable for most people you will need to have good hand dexterity and strength to use the secateurs. Please note that this workshop is not suitable for young children to do on their own.
I will send out a kit per person which includes, white and mix of colored wet strength lantern paper, instructions and materials, willow, tape, sponge and LED lights, and paper instructions.
If you have a color theme preference please let me know.
A pair of secateurs or wire cutters/ pliers to cut the willow.
PVA glue, a container for the glue, scissors, ruler, and wooden cane or hanging stick if you want to carry it.
You will also need a suitable place to make the lantern e,g a kitchen table
Somewhere to work e,g. a covered table and clothes that you don't mind getting PVA glue on.
