Animated Lantern Masterclass

9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, 24th November all 12pm-5pm / £50

DOCA will be running advanced lantern making workshops, where participants will develop skills over two weekends of intensive lantern making. Participants will be working alongside Chris and Mick Davey who are experienced lantern creators.

There will be four sessions (with an additional session on the 24th for finishing off) and although participants do not have to attend all in full, it’s advised so there is enough time to finish the lanterns! Masterclass goers should ensure they are free for the parade, taking place on the evening of 29th November.

Class participants will use traditional techniques, combined with some expert modern materials, to improve skills and the chance to create a unique animated lantern that will be part of the 2019 Lantern Parade. These masterclasses are perfect for makers, and creatives that are used to sculpting, or similar working with their hands.

All sessions are taking place at St John’s Parish Room, Long Street, Devizes, SN10 1PN from 12pm-5pm. All materials are included in the £50 masterclass fee.
