2017 Luminata — Lantern-Making Workshops!

Luminata is around the corner; time to find wonder in the changing of the seasons and celebrate the Autumnal Equinox. Join your friends for a Procession of Light on Thursday, September 21 at Green Lake.

Our Luminata lantern making workshops are kicking off August 30th, and we hope you’ll join in the fun. We’ll be teaching you how to make both papier mache and painted lanterns, as well as offering a few specialty workshops. Come down and say hello! Make one for yourself, and help make more to sell at the event on Sept. 21st. All proceeds benefit the Fremont Arts Council. It’s going to be easy, fun, and an opportunity to connect with friends old and new.

NEW! Specialty Lantern-Making Workshops Added

Join artist, Sarah Lovett, in making reed and paper lanterns — from scratch!  See the specialty lantern dates below.  (Specialty lanterns usually take tow sessions to complete).

We have all the materials you’ll need, though we welcome your donations of: reed, very thin twigs and bamboo sticks (around 1/16th of an inch in diameter) and beautiful art and translucent papers, for building lanterns.

These “Make one, Take One” workshops are free if you are able to make a lantern for our Luminata lantern sale, and then you’re also free to make one to take home.  If you only have time to make a lantern for yourself, we request a $20 donation to cover materials.
