Lantern Workshops

Lantern workshops are held in the lead up to the main Carnival event. This is a great way for the public to get involved in helping make the event happen. They are held on the three weekends leading up to the Carnival date. 

 

 

Workshop Details

Almost anyone over the age of seven can make a lantern and it is a great family activity. All materials are provided and trained instructors are on hand. It takes roughly two hours to make a lantern and everyone who makes a lantern becomes part of the procession on Carnival night.

All children under the age of 12 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please be aware that young children need a lot of parental help.

Each lantern made at the workshops costs $7 to cover materials used. This is paid on the day (cash only). 

There are a limited number of places at the workshops. If you miss out on booking a spot in the workshops you can still attend the main event or get involved as a volunteer.

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Workshop Types

There are six days of workshops to be held. The theme of the Carnival changes each year and so do the designs of the lanterns. This year's lantern designs are yet to be finalised.
