This was a creative workshop designed to celebrate the opening of Walthamstow as the 2019 Borough of Culture in January 2019.
The aim of the workshop was to create a workshop that could be delivered in 15 minutes, that will have a high end product, will look beautiful, will be in tune with Walthamstow and honour the London Borough of Culture. For the workshop I designed 3 different lanterns, one for each day of the event inspired by the iconics: Walthamstow Stadium, The Wedlands and William Morris. All the paper lanterns where printed using Shetland and Recycled 160g paper.
With the help of Kay and Sue we delivered 900 Paper Lanterns on 3 days. It was great to experience how families came to do the workshop with us and left proudly with their paper lanterns leading their way.
Here are some of the many feedbacks that we collect from the experience:
