About the Lantern Types:
Globe Lantern: A globe lantern can be formed in an evening and left to dry over night. The next day requires about 20 minutes to finish it and add the candle. Price: $15
Salmon Lanterns: These lanterns are made from wire and require more patience as a frame needs to be built with wire and then tissue paper applied over the frame. Yoko will help you master these technique. Price: $25
Glass Jar Lanterns: These lanterns require only a jar and some wire, meaning you can learn with us and continue creating at home! Materials provided. Price: $10
Advanced Lanterns: Attendees will be able to challenge their previous knowledge of lantern-making by delving into use of bamboo, wire, and other advanced materials. Price: $25
