Rossland, BC – Join the RCAC on July 20 at the Rossland Museum and Discovery Centre for a special youth lantern-making workshop led by the talented Heather Harwood. This youth workshop, with only 12 spaces available, promises a unique and creative experience for all participants. Register early to secure your spot!

During the workshop, participants will be upcycling thrifted fabrics into beautiful lanterns by creating prints with leaves and flowers. These beautiful printed fabrics will then be sewn around a hoop made from the top of a recycled yogurt container. Each lantern will be completed with a small light, and if time allows, beads and thread for added embellishment.

All art supplies will be provided.
