Diwali the Festival of Lights

Diwali is the Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The story of Diwali  has one common theme no matter where people celebrate and that is  the victory of good over evil. Doorstep designs are made for good luck with coloured powders called Rangolis.

The students in the A2 class designed and created Diya Lamps. They made small pots from clay which could be described as ‘thumb pots’ as they are made by pressing the thumb into a ball of clay and shaping it. Once the clay was dry the students decorated the Diya Lamps using bright coloured paints and glitter. Students then put a tealight into the Diya Lamp.
