To celebrate the Mid-Autumn festival and embrace the tradition, contemporary artisan Jinno Neko has designed an exclusive lantern with rabbit and magpie patterns. On Sept 26 (Saturday), Jinno Neko will be teaching how to make a lantern by making use of the traditional bamboo crafting and papier-mache techniques of “binding, paper-mounting, painting, assembling”.
The fee includes 2 sets of materials in different colors, so you could craft another one at home! Join us to make a lantern by yourself and learn more about bamboo crafting!
*The workshop is suitable for 12 years old or above
