Lantern making workshop
We have a very exciting community event that RAPS will be a key partner in creating and celebrating. Starlings Support are designing a project with Cohesion Plus and Future Foundry – both Arts Council NPOs. The company have been granted Arts Council funding and together with the local community we will be hosting a light parade in Newington. More information about the event is to follow shortly.
During our weeklong event celebrating black history and culture, the children will take part in a series of workshops. All children will be given the opportunity to make a lantern sculpture/ hand lantern to showcase in the parade. The children will be making these with a specialist artist and will spend the day making these at various points in the week.
As you can probably imagine making 300 lanterns in a week with the children in years 1-6 is going to be a very challenging and time-consuming task, however we want all children to have the opportunity to showcase their work in the parade and this is where we need your help.
I am asking for parent volunteers to come in for the day to help the children in their class make the lanterns alongside their children. This will be a great opportunity for you to also be involved in the event and share what will be a wonderful day with your child at school and then walk proudly with your lantern in the parade.
