Light in a winter darkness

Winter Lights

18, 19 January 2020

 

This weekend saw two gentle events in Buxton Museum and Art Gallery and in the Cavendish Arcade as part of our “A Year in Our Town” project. Recycling plastic bottles (or odd bits of plastic and plastic cups), we made either small lanterns, tiny lanterns (think of the lower half of a 500ml water bottle) or panels to put in a window. The panels could either give you something intriguing to look at against the light outside or for people outside to admire as they walk past on these dark winter nights…..or both.

We’ll post a “do it yourself” guide to this activity later this week
