Making Chang Mai lanterns with the Creative Teens Lab - Chester Beatty Library

Super workshop with Thai Arts NI but labour intensive with the construction of the lanterns. This was good for the teens though as it forced them to be focused and complete the tasks in order to have a finished lantern before the end of the session. The sessions are usually 3 hours long but this particular day went on 30 minutes longer. I personally like the chrysalis forms with the wrapping of cling film. The word which has been coming to mind all week is 'Networking' and this particular workshops felt like making individual network constructions of kebab sticks and tape.
