Illuminate Lantern Workshops

These workshops were a bookable community workshops within Boston, to create lanterns for the Illuminate Parade. The illuminate parade is a light festival, held on the same night as the Christmas Light switch on. It is based on the story of the Pilgrims.

I ran two workshops. One constructing candles and the other suitcases. The suitcases show what the person would take if leaving, to sail to a new country.

The lanterns were made using willow, tissue paper and battery powered lighting.
