I had a delightful weekend teaching a great group of women how to make paper lanterns at the Quest Center here in Portland. The women are all in various stages of cancer recovery and I was honored to spend time with each and every one of them. The Quest Center provides this amazing resource (monthly free art workshops) for members of the community.
This weekend, everyone completed three projects: a shadow lantern, a collapsible reed lantern and a woven shade. All are meant to be covers for small tea lights or votive candles. Here are images of some of their creations.
