With ‘festivals of light’ all around the Northern Hemisphere in November and December, teenagers at AccessArt’s Experimental Drawing class had a fun time constructing giant lanterns out of withies and wet-strength tissue paper.

Each session was an hour and a quarter long and it took four weeks to make the lanterns. Students loved the challenge that working on a large scale gave them and the opportunity explore form and structure.

The final results were very pleasing and were enjoyed by parents and visitors to ArtWorks studios on the final session during a ‘celebration event’.
