THIS giant lantern will tower over the annual parade at Oxford’s Christmas Light Night.
The creation, in the shape of the White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia, was made by teenagers during a three-day workshop at Fusion Arts in East Oxford.
Kai Hughes-Foynes, 17, with Nicola Hall from Oxford city centre, said: “It has gone well. We worked well as a team, learnt new skills and made new friends.”
Nicola, 17, from Wood Farm, said: “It has been fun. It is a new experience and I learnt a lot.”
The workshop was one in a series at Fusion in the Culturevators programme for young people aged 14 to 25.
Sessions will also be held in schools over 12 weeks.
The first workshop finished on Wednesday. Oxford’s Christmas Light Festival runs from November 22-24, starting with the Light Night Lantern Parade on Friday, November 22.
