Lantern-making training workshops in preparation for the Light lantern event that will be held on the Doha Corniche in conjunction with the start of the World Cup on November 20, where public and private schools will participate in the workshops, to showcase the students' creations in the "Let's Light Up the Corniche" event.

This is one of the most important events that will be held in the State of Qatar to welcome fans attending the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and celebrate with them on this occasion. About 3000 to 4000 male and female students from 60 public and private schools will join the event, and the students will carry the lanterns they made with their parents along Doha Corniche.

Date and Timings:

  • November 20, 2022 (Timings are to be confirmed)

The training workshops were attended on the first day by a team of artists from Qatar Museums and Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar. Jelly Jackson, an Australian specialist in the manufacture of light lanterns, trained the attendees who will be supported by artists during the training workshops that are targeting teachers of visual arts, drawing and music from participating schools.

A video demonstrating how to do lanterns will be posted on the ministry's platforms, allowing the public to make their own lanterns to participate in the event.
