An engaging virtual art and craft activity designed to stimulate creativity and connect audiences online! Our charismatic virtual host demonstrates how to make stylish, miniature Chinese lanterns that can hang on doors, hooks etc. Online guests will follow simple step-by-step instructions using colourful, patterned paper and tools that are easy to obtain. While cutting out the templates, our virtual workshop leader will provide fun facts about Chinese New Year and encourage everyone to communicate and connect.
2. What's so special about Chinese Lanterns?
Traditionally, Chinese lanterns are red and oval-shaped decorations, adorned with red and gold tassels. In Chinese culture, the colour red is believed to symbolise warmth, happiness, and good fortune! The round shape symbolises wholeness and togetherness in China; reminiscent of the full moon. Chinese lanterns tend to make an appearance at special occasions such as Chinese New Year.
