Lantern-Making Workshop / BIG READ

March 12, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In many cultures, the full moon is a time of celebration. Families and communities come together to observe rituals, honor ancestors and reflect on life. Hanging and lighting lanterns is seen by many as a way to welcome good luck and happiness during this time.

Join us on Saturday, March 12, from 2 to 4pm at the Pennington United Methodist Church for a family-friendly workshop where you will make your own lantern to celebrate the upcoming full moon on March 18. You’ll also learn more about the history of the lantern and discover why this full moon is called the Worm Moon! The event is part of the BIG READ, organized by the Pennington Public Library. This workshop will be led by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council. Spriha Gupta, an artist and HV Arts Council member, will be the primary instructor.
