Are you wondering what kind of lantern to bring to the lantern walk? If you want to make your own, we’ve just finalized the details of an upcoming Lantern Making drop-in on December 10 from 3:30-7pm, at the Extend-a-Family WALES building 91 Moore Street. Come join us, and bring some friends. Crystal and Liam from Trash Theatre and neighbourhood artist Sarah Granskou will help us transform tissue, fabric, broom sticks, and other salvaged bits into lanterns. Bring your own wide mouth mason jar to make a felted jar lantern with Sarah.
In the meantime, I’m going to dig these tissue paper lanterns we made last winter out of the attic, so my four year old and her friends can start playing “lantern walk” again.
