Originating from the island of Matsu, between Fujian and Taiwan, these traditional paper lanterns known as “diamonds in the wind” are used to symbolise the act of finding peace despite adversity.

In this two and half hour workshop, local paper-crafting master Au Yeung Ping-chi shows participants how to make an auspicious bottle-shaped lantern using bamboo splints, coloured paper and strips of rice paper. Working in pairs, participants create a lantern and decorate it with messages of hope.
