Here in Buxton, Stone and Water had been planning a weekend of lantern walks through the woods in February 2021. That is clearly not a good event to organise now so we thought we would invite anyone who feels so inspired to bring the woodland into their house and share their trees with other people by making winter woodland windows!
We have two activities to help with this (you could, of course, invent your own Winter Woodland Windows without using any of our ideas!)
- Bottle Lanterns: little glowing lanterns for a window ledge or a darkened room (this activity)
- Woodland Window Panels: black card, coloured cellophane, a sense of stained glass
on the weekends of:13, 14th and 20, 21st February 2021
Between 6 and 8pm those Saturdays and Sundays (and other days and times if you want!) please light your window so anyone out for an evening stroll (go on, take a carefully distanced wander) might get a touch of Winter Woodland Wonder. If you stand outside yourselves, please take a photo of your own window and send it to us. We’ll post a gallery of winter woodland windows!
We have 100 sets of kits to help make both bottle lanterns and woodland windows. These are available free to people in Buxton and up to 10 miles away from here. If you would like a set please get in touch:
