About the event

Julie from Pip Cottage in conjunction with Heysham Nature Reserve’s, ‘Connecting to Nature’ project is leading the session showing you step-by-step how to make a wood-based willow lantern. Booking is essential and all materials will be pre-prepared and sent out to you in the post a few days before the zoom workshop. One pack has enough willow for a child with help from an adult to make one lantern. Recommended for children aged 8 + with adult supervision essential. Please book and register before 1st March to provide enough time to get the kit to you by post.

We advise that you help and supervise your children throughout the session.

Your kit includes:

Willow, pre-soaked

Wooden disc base with holes


Willow care guidance

You will need to provide secateurs and a battery operated t-light to finish off your project.



£10.00 per kit. Due to funding from EDF Energy in conjunction with Heysham Nature Reserve, our price is £10 but the normal price for kit and training would be £35.
