DAZZLING lights and handmade lanterns were pride of place at an Artweeks exhibition.

Will Griffiths spent nearly 10 hours crafting each shade.

And now the 21-year-old student from Oxford, pictured, is able to show his work.

Mr Griffiths, in his final year of a BA in Furniture Design at the Rycotewood Furniture Centre in Oxpens Road, said: “They were made for a project as part of my final year. We had to make a minimum batch of five. It takes about a day to make one.”

The 40cm tall ash and aeroply lanterns will be on display at the City of Oxford College at the weekend.

He added: “This is the first-time I have exhibited at Rycotewood. It was nice to get feedback from the public to what they think of our designs.

This is one of many exhibitions taking place this week across the city as part of Artweeks.
