The second annual Lotus Lantern and Luminaria Project is an initiative to bring the glow of lanterns to our Bloomington community as the days shorten and the nights get longer. This year, Lotus will feature a Korean-inspired lantern with a design by Shelley Hanmo Qian of JunoniaArts. Make and take a lantern at this year’s workshops.

You must register here on Eventbrite to sign up for a workshop spot.

Participants may also have the option to put together either a Chinese paper lantern or a wooden framed European-style lantern. The Lotus Lantern and Luminaria Project will culminate with a lantern walk on November 19.

Sign up here to participate in the lantern walk on November 19.

Community workshop dates and times will include: 11/2, 11/9, 11/16 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. and 11/13 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Participants will also be invited to join our November 19 Lotus Lantern Walk. The walk is open to families, friends, and individuals.
