Japanese Lantern Pottery Workshop
Light up your Japanese name for all to see with this relaxing, hands-on pottery workshop with Alvin Alejo in Brisbane!
Guided by Alvin, you’ll learn how to sculpt an elegant piece of pottery that can be used in the garden, entrances, pathways and decks where the sun touches it. You’ll make the lantern out of clay before it is glazed and fired in the kiln.
The writing is in Japanese characters using the maker’s name or an uplifting word such as happiness, love, peace, harmony etc. The total height of your ceramic piece is about 30 cm.
Its small solar panel generates power during sunny hours and radiates light through the name carved in it at night. The duration of its light depends on the power generated by the sun on its panel.
Enjoy the relaxing and mindful practice of hand building pottery and take home a welcome and beautiful lantern for your home!
