Lantern Workshop & Walk 2013 PosterSouthHill

South Hill Neighbours is hosting a lantern-making afternoon at the Celebration Hall at Mountain View Cemetery, 5455 Fraser Street, this Saturday afternoon.  You are invited to come and create your own lantern. Supplies will be provided to create one of the following types of lantern: a hand-carved turnip lantern; a wax paper window lantern or a tissue paper globe lantern. They will also have a simpler version of the globe lantern for small children.  All ages are welcome to attend the workshop.

The aim is to create lanterns in preparation for a lantern procession to All Souls Night which takes place in the evening on Saturday, October 26th at Mountain View Cemetery. All participants in the All Souls Night are welcome to bring photos of loved ones they have lost which can be incorporated into the lantern so that it becomes a creative memorial to honour that person. This workshop is being offered through Neighbourhood Small Grant Project which is funded through the Vancouver Foundation. If you would like further information or to register for the workshop, email: southhill.neighbours@gmail.com.
