HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!
LUNAR NEW YEAR PRINTED PAPER LANTERNS
Join me in the studio to welcome in Lunar New Year as we celebrate the Year of the Dragon! In many Asian cultures, the holiday brings families and friends together to celebrate the new year. Lanterns symbolize good luck, health and prosperity and their light is a way to set an intention, make a wish and spread good fortune.
In this workshop, participants will design and build a unique handmade lantern using a variety of translucent paper materials, chip board, fiber and small LED lights. Guests will be encouraged to experiment, craft and create their own printed imagery on panels using a variety of stencils and block printing tools. Each participant will make one lantern to take home, light and enjoy in celebration! All materials will be provided. No prior printmaking experience is necessary.
