A December Lantern Workshop

When: 1st and 2nd December 2012

When? 10am – 2pm

Where: Hadfield Hall, Hadfield, Glossop, SK13 2AA

What: a lantern making workshop, using willow and tissue to make simple processional lanterns with the opportunity to maybe be a bit more adventurous!

What? just come along and join in. Drop in during the session – give yourself at least 45 minutes to make your lantern (more for the more intricate ones). We’ll provide materials and give you the chance to end up peeling glue off your fingers

leaves, pictures, patterns can all be

fixed into our lanterns


Cost: it’s free! (I think)

Who: High Peak Community Arts have brought Creeping Toad (me!) in to lead lantern sessions with local schools and now with the public

lanterns might be fish, pirates ships…


What’s it for? We are making lanterns for a procession on Friday 7th, meeting at the Hall at 6pm and then processing through the streets of Hadfield before the switching on of the Christmas Lights



and even party girls

So come and join in, be creative, make a mess and then join the procession on Friday and add your light to lift the winter darkness!
