Lantern Making Workshop with Kassandra Bossell

Provided by:

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM


Create your own beautiful lantern using cane and paper in this full day workshop. It’s up to you what form you make. Be inspired by animals, sea creatures or even abstract shapes in this easy to learn, non-toxic process. Students will learn the simple techniques for making the lantern structure using bamboo and cane then cover the form with tissue paper. Leave your lantern white, or paint it with bright colours to create a coloured glow once lit up. Kassandra Bossell is an experienced artist, designer and prop-maker. Drawing inspiration from the hanging lanterns of northern Thailand, participants will be taught simple techniques using cane, wire and paper to construct a colourful creature ready to be lit. No experience required, and all speciality materials are included in the workshop fee. This full-day workshop is suitable for adults and high school students 15 years +.
