Lantern Making Workshop October 17th For All Souls Night

3 Oct

LostSoulsSouthHilltin-can lanterns hangingSouth Hill Neighbours is hosting a lantern making workshop on Saturday, October 17th at Mountain View Cemetery Celebration Hall from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. You are invited to come and craft your own lantern. Supplies will be provided, but you are asked to bring your creativity with you.  Last year they saw beautiful carved turnip lanterns (pictured below), wax paper window lanterns and tissue paper globe lanterns.  Adults and teens can design their own more complex shimmering orbs of beauty while small children can work on simpler versions.  All ages are welcome.  South Hill Neighbours will be creating these lanterns in preparation for a lantern procession to All Souls Night which takes place on October 24th.  Everyone is invited to come out and participate.  If you plan to participate in the All Souls Night, participants are encouraged to bring photos of loved ones they have lost so they can incorporate their photos into the lantern so that it becomes a creative memorial to honour that person.  This community event is organized by South Hill Neighbours and funded by the Neighbourhood Small Grant Project which is brought to you by the Vancouver Foundation. If you would like more information about this event, please email southhill.neighbours@gmail.com.
