Recently art and design students from both Year 9 and 11 worked with 2 leading artists from the Liverpool Lantern Company. Students showed enthusiasm and commitment throughout the days workshop producing amazing sculptural outcomes. Students were working on a live project with two leading artists. The students created willow lanterns based on two set themed animals such as owls and hedgehogs. Students had to create the sculptural framework using willow and covered using fine tissue paper, the surface design was also collaged using an assortment of tissue papers. The lanterns were lit internally using LED lights to create an enchanting visual display. The work created from the day will used as supporting work for their GCSE coursework portfolios.
