I ended up stumbling in on make your own lantern and it was a fantastic experience. The owner is very nice, patient and funny and you walk away with a great appreciation of Hoi An lanterns.

My 8 & 11 year old daughters had an excellent time making lanterns. Lin was very patient and caring, helping my children without actually doing it for them. It was a highlight of our stay in Hoi An. Definitely a must-do for any family. Kids are so pleased they are taking something home they made themselves.

By far, this activity with the way it is taught in these classes, is the best thing to do in Hoi An. Out of the heat of shopping and crowds this provides a cool two-three hours of maybe an afternoon in creative focus. You dont need to be an expert or good with handicrafts the method is taught well and with patience. The results were incredible and better than anything bought... and wow I made it. This would be amazing for children probably 8 plus (as it takes a couple of hours).

If you visit hoi an there is no better souvenir than creating your own lantern!!

The team were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the class. Len gave excellent instructions to follow on how to create the lantern from start to finish. He was also more than happy to double check that your lantern was looking good at all stages. You get to choose from 2 d3signs and also a wide range of colours. We were very happy with the end product which is collapsible so can be packed away easily :)
