Lantern Making

Don't be left lantern-less! Artists from the Secret Lantern Society will help you make your own beautiful lantern. All materials are provided and participants are encouraged to bring pressed leaves and flowers or other decorative elements. Price is per lantern so parent & child can create one lantern together. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Lantern Making Workshops take place at both Roundhouse Community Centre and False Creek Community Centre. Workshops are scheduled in the next two weeks as well as on Solstice Night, Dec 21.

NoteTo avoid disappointment, please ensure registration is completed 24 hours in advance of workshop schedule. Workshops may be cancelled 24 hours in advance due to insufficient registration.
