Learn to make a traditional lantern and bring light to this age-old handicraft with a lantern master and one of the few traditional lantern makers left in Malaysia.
Lanterns primarily served as a major light source in the olden days, and also carries blessings in each light. Now they are used as decorations and during celebrations, especially Mid-Autumn Festival. In this experience, you will enjoy the process of making lantern by hand in the cozy atmosphere of my workshop under my guidance. From bending the bamboo sticks to draping clothes onto the wooden lantern frames, this hands-on experience gives you a nostalgic and memorable exploration of this traditional trade in Ipoh.
