Lantern-Making Workshops

Join us for one of our 2017 public lantern-making workshops!




Make your very own paper and bamboo lantern, and bring it to the festival on November 18 to parade through the streets and light up the night!



No experience required, and all ages welcome, although children may require assistance. We provide the materials & instruction. You bring your friends, family and creativity! We recommend you give yourself 3 hours to make a lantern.
