Willow Lantern Building Workshop

30th September 2024
WI House, Front Street, Norby, Thirsk, YO7 1BG
45 + £10 payable on the day for materials. Members only.

Learn the basic skills and forms of lantern building, and all about the properties of willow and paper. Produce a beautiful “Seed-pod” inspired lantern which will incorporate battery powered LED lighting, suitable for indoor or outdoor use. It will be a busy day building a striking and sculptural lantern. You will take home a completed lantern form ready to surface decorate with your unique personal design in your own time at home if desired. The coloured translucent paper to achieve this is supplied.

There will be some working in pairs and quite a bit of time standing.

You will need to bring the following:-

  • A pair of sharp secateurs/snips, pliers if you have a preferred pair.
  • Apron, overall or clothes you don’t mind getting non-washable PVA glue on.
  • A packed lunch.
  • Polythene protection for car seats as there is a possibility that lanterns may not be completely dry by the end of the day. A couple of opened up black bin liners should do the trick.

Tea & Coffee Included.

£10 for materials on the day to the Tutor.
