This course will provide you with all the materials, tools and information to create your own willow lantern that you can use over and over again at festivals, lantern processions and Halloween!

We will learn the art of bending soaked willow to create a lantern shape of your choice and attach it using basic lashing techniques.

We will decorate it using tissue paper, pva and a decoration of your choice, you could have a woodland theme, create a pumpkin lantern or even have a dragonfly lantern.

The lantern will have a hoop so that you can either hang it up or carry it around with you on a woven willow stick.
