Artist Bonnie Gale to provide lantern making at The Place
NORWICH – The Place has announced that it will be working with local artist Bonnie Gale to provide a five-week Lantern-Making Workshop for teens in Chenango County. Ms. Gale, who applied and received a New York State Decentralization (DEC) grant through the Chenango Council of the Arts to make this project possible, will work with students to design willow stick framework lanterns covered with paper and lit with LED lights. Lanterns may be as simple as pyramid shapes or as extravagant as large scale fantastic creatures, made by several participants. The teens themselves will determine the design and form.
