Lantern Making Workshops

Saturday 25th Nov 2017 — Saturday 2nd Dec 2017

FREE (no booking required)

Come and create your very own lantern for the Lantern Procession. 

Work with professional Lantern-makers to create a traditional pyramid Lantern out of willow and paper, to carry in our Festival of Light procession!

We had around 250 people join us for these workshops last year, and we'd love to see more! These workshops are a great chance to get really involved in one of our biggest annual events, so come along and join in with the creative fun. You'll also receive an invitation to the Parade and instructions on how to further decorate your Lantern at home if you would like.

Lanterns take between 1 and 2 hours to make, and we ask that you are able to take your Lantern away with you at the end of the workshop as we are unable to store them. Children under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult, and it is recommended that you dress for mess.

Sat 25 Nov, 10am - 1pm & 2pm - 5pm | The Waterside Centre, Newbury

Sat 2 Dec, 10am - 1pm & 2pm - 5pm | 101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space, Greenham Business Park

Children under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult, and bring an old t-shirt as you may get messy!
