The workshop will begin with the setting up of your paper lantern which will be glued together. You will receive a demonstration from Ula who will teach you some Painting techniques to help you warm up by painting onto Rice Paper.

Finally you will then create your own design using our provided references for inspiration and paint onto your very own paper lantern.
