Public Lantern Making Workshop

24th November 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

24th November from 10am – 4pm (please arrive on time because it takes a day to make a lantern).

4CG and Small World Theatre are delighted to announce Cardigan’s Giant Lantern Parade on 6 December at 7pm, thanks to a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund.

This year 4CG and Small World Theatre introduce a ‘Winter Circus’ theme for the giant parade. Think vintage circus with clowns, elephants, zebras, a strong man, jugglers and aerialists. Public Lantern Making Workshops will be 10am – 4pm (please arrive on time as it takes a whole day to make a lantern) on Sundays 10th and 24th November and 1st December. There will be a small charge of £2 per lantern to help cover material costs.

Lantern Making is suitable for ages 8+ and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Families with younger children are encouraged to work together to make a small lantern. Please bring an apron/ overall and packed lunch.

Spend the morning creating your lantern framework using sustainable materials. Get messy in the the afternoon adding glue and tissue paper to your willow frame. All lanterns are stored safely at Small World Theatre until the Parade.
