Amazing and fun class!
My boyfriend and I booked this class when we stayed in Hoi An. Such an amazing experience! We both enjoyed making these from the frame to adding the silk onto the bamboo (with lots of help). The staff were amazing and patient with us! I would definitely recommend everyone trying this! It took us about 2 hours to complete the lanterns and we got to take them home! Amazing!

fabulous lantern making course
Feb 2020
Four of us spent a delightful couple of hours making a vietnamese lantern from scratch. I am so glad we booked it, I was concerned it was too grown up for my 11 year old child but the instructor was amazing and very patient and we all came away with amazing lanterns. Thank you very much indeed...highly recommended.

Fun make your own souvenir
A would recomend everyone to do this while in Hoi An. It is so much fun to make your own lantern and with the help from the staff not so difficult. You get to bring the lantern home with you when your done, nice and folded to fit in your bag. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Great lantern making workshop
Myself and my boyfriend signed up for the lantern making workshop. We chose the one where you make the frame too. I would highly recommend this class! There were only 3 others in the class and we all nearly had 1:1 help from the staff. They were so so friendly and so helpful. They gave us so much help when we needed but also left us to do it too. We both live in northern Vietnam teaching and loved hearing about our stories and experiences living in Vietnam. They even taught us more vietnamese. It was really affordable too and a great way to spend 2-3 hours!

Best part of our stay in Hoi An
My mum and I did this lantern making class today and it was by far my favourite thing we've done so far. Tam talked us through the history of the lantern in Hoi An and then helped us to build one. We mostly did it on our own, except the finishing touches. The staff were friendly, funny and super nice. You really felt a sense of achievement and they made everyone feel special and welcome. I would definitely reccomend this as top of your list for things to do in Hoi An!

Best part of our trip to Hoi An
Such fun learning about the history of lanterns and making my very own lantern at this 2 hour class. Tam our teacher was really kind, funny and friendly. So much nicer than just buying a lantern. Was very tempted to come back and make another but we ran out of time...will be back some day though!

Highlight of my trip to Hoi An
Feb 2020
The lantern making class was SO FUN! Our teachers were so helpful and had a great sense of humour. All the lanterns in Hoi An that you can buy are so beautiful, but it was so fun to learn how to make them yourself. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a crafty afternoon, you will not regret it
