Lantern Workshop - Hutt Winter Festival

At these lantern making workshops you will be creating a lantern that you can attach to a bike, wheelchair or pushchair, or carry while you walk. We’ll show you how you can light it up either using your bike lights or with LED lights.

We hope this will result in people feeling inspired and empowered to bring their lanterns and take part in the illuminated bike parade and the ‘Lighting our Ancestral Pathways’ procession at the Hutt Winter Festival on Saturday 18 August.

We are all interested in sustainability and recycling, so where possible we will use recycled and upcycled materials to create lanterns. We will use recycled laptop batteries to power our LED lighting strips, which can be recharged and reused, saving a huge amount of hazardous waste ending up in the dump.

Limit: 30 participants
