Matthews Yard invites you to our cosy lounge for lantern making and painting in celebration of Chinese New Year! In 2018 we welcome the year of the dog which occupies the eleventh position on the chinese zodiac calendar. Paint, create and adorn your Chinese lanterns with traditional riddles and designs with music and tea to get you inspired.
Children must have a guardian, and this event is family friendly! You can be a solo adult, artist or couple wanting to create a cute lantern for home, a gift or just test your skills and have a little fun together.
This year we will be hosting two ticketed dates:
Saturday 10th & 11th February, 12pm – 4pm
We have special group tickets are available, these are limited to three per day.
Limited places and due to the popularity of this event, we recommend you book well in advance. Please note that tickets are non-refundable. <3
This is an untutored workshop but help is always at hand if you need it. All materials are included in the booking price. You will be able to create a range of different paper lanterns, from scratch or paint our ready made ones! Light instructions and plenty of templates are provided!
You are more than welcome to bring your own tools and additional materials if you have bold plans for your lantern creation!
