You can watch a video on how to make the lanterns (see below)
You will need
Decorative materials- felt-tips, sharpies, paints, glitter gel pens, shiny papers, ribbons, tissue paper, PVA glue, wrapping paper, scissors, glue brushes, paint brushes
You can use as little or as much as you like.
Lay the lantern dull side up. (dull side is the front, shiny side is the back) with the wire at the top.
Leave a 2 cm border each side- this is so can be put together later.
Now draw, paint, print, collage your Christmas design on the front
(Think about your design and maybe try out some ideas on a spare piece of paper)
Wait until your lantern is dry. You can then-
Construct your lantern yourself by gently bending it round to close the 2 ends and then staple them together. Bring it along to collect a light to the Conquest Theatre on Saturday 18th Nov from 3.30 pm.
Bring your finished lantern flat, to the Conquest Theatre on Saturday 18th Nov from 3.30 pm to be put together and lit.
You will then be ready to join the lantern Procession for the
