For lantern making workshops, each person attending the session needs to buy a ticket. This includes supervising adults.
The public workshops are suitable for all the family.
Each year we offer a number of workshops to local community groups.
If you have a community group which you think would benefit from a Community Lantern Making Workshop in 2019 please get in touch.
As part of the Lantern Parade project we offer subsidised workshops to local primary schools in the weeks before the parade.
Workshops are suitable for KS2 and SEN students, and take place at your school. The sessions are run by professional arts practitioners, who are DBS checked.
During these hands on workshops students create withe and tissue animal inspired lanterns. The workshops allow children to develop 3D visual skills and experience working with different materials in your school environment.
All schools taking part in these exciting workshops are encouraged to come along with friends and family to see their hard work light up the town during the Parade on Saturday 8 December.
Schools workshops cost: £135 donation per booking, depending on timings we can work with up to 3 classes in a day. (Lantern Parade workshops do not form part of the SMR Farm Out allocation.)
School Workshop bookings are taken directly through Same Sky, but to register you interest, or for more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This year’s Carnival of the Animals Lantern Parade takes place on Saturday 8 December.
