Surtal Arts Lantern Making Workshop


As part of Derby Season of Light, Surtal Arts are bringing a bit of magical light in this autumn with artist, Kate Doncaster, who is running a workshop where you can create your own beautiful lantern using biodegradable materials including willow and tissue paper.

Lanterns will be suitable to lit with energy-efficient LED lights (not included with the ticket price) and will be held up on bamboo sticks.

Tuesday 25th October 14:30 – 16:30

No lanterns will be released into the air. Finished lanterns can be carried triumphantly in the Derby Lantern Parade on 12th November

Ticket price: £5 per person (there are limited places so booking is essential)

Book your ticket

Suitable for adults and children aged 6+
