Workshop Sessions

 

At Morningside Lights workshops, lantern building is a collaborative process — and the collaboration is part of the fun! You may start a lantern for someone else to finish, or pick up where someone else left off to create a work of art that reflects the collective vision of our community. 

Each day's workshop activities are a step in the process as our lanterns take shape from idea to final product. See below for our daily menu of activities, but please note the following activities are subject to change based on our progress. And remember, no experience is necessary.
