Join in and light up lockdown
January and February 2021
Is it starting to feel like this long winter will last forever?
Help break up the dark, dull days of lockdown by joining in with Illuminate Larkhall.
Maybe you’ve seen illuminated window trails in other parts of Bath (e.g. Newbridge) and elsewhere – there have been a few recently. Now we’re coordinating one for Larkhall to brighten up the dark nights.
If you’re hearing about this for the first time and want to make a display but think you might be a bit late, please just join in and let us know by sending a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will definitely be merrier with more.
Joining in is simple – all you need to do is:
Create a stained-glass inspired window decoration using tissue paper, tracing paper, greaseproof paper, marker pens etc.
It can be words or pictures and illustrative or abstract – do whatever takes your fancy
Display it in a window that can be seen from the street and where you’re happy to leave a light on.
Send a photo of your creation to email@example.com
Ideas To Make your own
Glue tissue paper or cardboard shapes onto tracing paper or greaseproof paper
Draw onto tracing paper or greaseproof paper with a dark-coloured marker pen
Cut holes in different shapes from cardboard or dark paper and cover the cut out area with coloured tissue paper, tracing paper or greaseproof paper
Use coloured sweet wrappers and cellophane - Quality Street are great for this!
If you’re short of ideas or not very confident about your design skills, you can find images on the internet to cut out or copy - you can find clipart silhouettes of pretty-much anything.
