Jar Lantern Workshop
Mon. Sep 14th, 6 – 8 pm @ Slocan Community Hall
Glass Jar Lanterns require only a jar, paper, and some wire, meaning you can learn with us and continue creating at home. These hugely popular lanterns are simple and fun to make, and look beautiful when lit in the evening. Come decorate your own lanterns and bring them to our evening Moon Festival events throughout the month! This workshop is taught by local artist Yoko Tomita.
Please note that this event will be taking place indoors at the Collingwood Neighbourhood House Annex, with limited capacity. The workshop will be in a large room with plenty of space for social distancing. You may sign up for a half-hour time slot below from 6-8 pm. Each jar lantern costs $12.
We will require attendees to pre-register for this event, as we have a limited capacity in order to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all guests.
Note: To register, please select a time slot and change the number in the dropdown menu to however many people you are registering for (or however many lanterns you would like to make).
Refund Policy: If you would like to cancel your workshop attendance, please let us know at least one full day prior to the start of the event, and we will offer you a refund.
