VENUE: 107 South Eveleigh

Did you know the ﬁrst paper lanterns were made over 2,000 years ago? The lantern-making tradition has been passed down through generations in much of the Asian world.
Join us this Lunar New Year to make and create your unique sustainable lantern using household recycled materials and plant offcuts. Materials supplied and BYO recycled materials are also welcome — empty egg cartons, milk bottles, strawberry tubs and tree branches … we will turn trash into treasure and prosperity for the New Year!
Designer Danling Xiao of sustainable start-up, ReCo and 107 Projects will design the lantern layout and manage the on-site living lantern community installation.
Each one-hour workshop is a fun craft activity for the young and old, no experience required. Ensure those who haven't mastered scissors yet have a loved one to help if needed! You can take your beautiful creations home or display your lanterns in a dedicated area at South Eveleigh and return to collect them the following week.
Location: 107 Projects, Level 1, Community Building, 2 Davy Road, Eveleigh 2015.
