This season marks the time of the Winter Solstice, when the sun has its shortest daily run time, leaving us with the most darkness we see all year.  It also marks a special time dedicated to spending quality time with those you love and spreading cheer all around.  I developed this new class in an effort to give each of us an opportunity to celebrate all of these and to bring back a long lost community tradition together!

This class has two parts:  On Sunday, December 17, there will be two available sessions of time for your family to choose from to come together and make colorful tissue paper-mache lanterns, which you will carry with you as you carol the following Wednesday night.  You can sign up as a family to make one lantern together or you can each make your own, the choice is yours.  The more lanterns we carry that night the more beautiful it will be though!  After you have made your lanterns you will leave them to dry. Then, on Wednesday, December 20, at 6:30p, your family will return to the studio, pick up your lanterns (which will be ready and wired for you), grab a quick snack, and join a wonderful local musician or two who will lead us through the surrounding neighborhood lighting up the night with our artwork and using holiday songs and our own voices to spread love and cheer to our neighbors, just like in the days of ‘ol!

Hoping your family will join mine for this MAKEshop… (not thinking my singing voice alone would spread much delight to anyone! Ha!)

Also, if you are finding it hard to sign up PleaSe contact me and I will try to move things around or add.  Would love for everyone to participate that wants to!
