Alongside other local craftsmen and their products including soap, honey, and knitted goods, Ronan first made the scarlet light sword — also known as Kylo Ren — at Halloween and thought it would be a good idea to share with the community how it was made, through a tutorial video.

The light sword tutorial will join Ronan’s collection of how-to videos for origami and action figures on his Youtube channel.
