Lantern building workshops at Newport Wetlands

In the build up to our Lantern Parade and festive activities evening on the 15th December, we are holding some workshops where you can come and build you're very own lantern. Whether you wish to bring it to our event is completely your choice! Building lanterns takes a little bit of time and can only be decorated once dried. You are welcome to take your lanterns home to decorate or leave with us and decorate on the night of our event.

Our lanterns will be made from locally grown willow and tissue paper. Local lantern artists will be on site too, to help and support you in building your own if you wish to make something a little challenging.

Please not dogs and all children must be supervised by an adult.
