Lantern making in October half term
October’s half term holiday will see the return of the ever popular lantern making workshops at The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber.
The workshops will run between Monday 25 and Friday 29 October at The Ropewalk and have once again been organised by the Barton based children’s charity, ST-ART.
ST-ART is offering full day making sessions from 10am to 3pm or half day sessions from 10am to 12 noon and 1pm to 3pm. Workshops cost £2 for a half day and £5 for a full day and if you book onto a full day session remember to bring a packed lunch with you.
“The theme for this year’s lanterns will be giant bugs, and is the fourth year ST-ART will be offering these workshops,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight.
She explained that the lanterns would be constructed from dried willow and tissue paper and the workshops offer families the opportunity to build giant lanterns for a parade which is part of Barton Christmas Festival, which takes place this year on Saturday November 27.
“With extra funding this year ST-ART is able to offer lantern making sessions in some of the villages around Barton so please check nearer the time to see if there is a lantern making session near you,” she sent on.
Lantern making workshops are suitable for all ages but under eights must be accompanied by an adult. Places are limited so please book your place to avoid disappointment.
