Paper Lantern Making Workshop


Two Day Workshop

with Annie Brennan

Make a lantern that will impress your friends, that you can use in the Latrobe Winterfest Lantern Parade and learn valuable skills along the way.

Create an imaginative, sculptural lantern. We will be using bamboo cane and/or galvanised wire to make the lantern frames. We then cover them with greaseproof papers and coloured tissue papers. 

  • These candle-lit lanterns look stunning in twilight Lantern Parades at Festivals and Special Events. 
  • They can also enhance your garden or deck of night-time BBQs of parties. 

Date: Saturday and Sunday, August 1-2
Time: 10am-2pm
Cost: $70 for two days (plus $10 material)
