Craft your own lantern to light up the winter solstice on December 8th from 11am – 4:30pm at the Sunset Community Centre

Join Sunset’s Artists in Residence and master lantern builder Ian McFarlane in a FREE lantern making workshop. Participants will learn how to shape rattan reeds and fabric into beautiful lanterns to bring light to the short and dark days of winter. These lanterns will be featured in the Sunset Winter Solstice Lantern Walk on December 21.

Please note: Each lantern takes approximately 4 hours to complete. People ages 14 and up may build on their own, while younger children will need to work with an adult. Cooperation in building is encouraged!

This workshop is free, but materials and spaces are limited.
