This years theme for City of Lights was expect the unexpected. Unfortunately i didn’t make it to the first meeting which was discussing what type of lantern to make but it was decided that a bird would be the lantern of choice. Last year we made the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.
I helped out when a lot of the work had already been done, not because im lazy but because the team leader Kym did a fantastic job on getting the lantern started when i was away doing my painting course in St Ives. Myself and fellow student Tina spent majority of a day piecing the neck together so it would articulate and interact with the crowd. Even though i was feeling quite poorly we got it finished, i didn’t want to let the team down.
