Christmas Lantern will teach about transparency, translucency and opacity, and how filters can be used. We will apply these effects cutting out shapes and figures from paper, and using these to make a Christmas lantern. We will also look at a few contemporary artists and how they use colour and light in their work (e.g. Olafur Eliasson and Dan Flavin). The workshop will also serve as an introduction to Workshop Four, Iridescence (January 2017).
