    Fabulous work – very exciting to see the beautiful linear structures constructed from the withies and I love the scale of the lanterns!

    What a super workshop. This is something I would love to try with my art groups. Thank you for sharing.

    Made some out our primary school a few years ago. Then got in trouble when we tried to join the local lantern parade because we hadn’t used “fireproof” tissue! Is there really such a thing?

      Thanks Jane – I did do some research before the project and the recommend paper was wet-strength tissue paper. Hope that helps.
      Cheers, Sheila

    Love seeing those little hands hard at work, with such a rewarding outcome! Very inspiring. I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves this holiday season with my kids and making some lanterns. Thank you Access Art!

    Lovely designs! I’ve used LED stick and click lights (Poundland sell 4 in a pack) and imitation greaseproof paper (what your chips are wrapped in) is good instead of wet strength tissue paper. I’m inspired to make some more now! Thanks!

      I love the idea of LED sticks and grease proof paper does sound like a cheaper option – I bought 65 sheets of wet-proof paper online for about £10. Please do show us what you make! best wishes, Sheila (AccessArt)
