Giant Lantern Making Workshops

Bright Seeds

The Bright Seed Lantern Project brings giant puppet-maker Daniele Poidomani of Memetica to work with interested people on the Tablelands to create giant lanterns inspired by the seed of our native forests. These lanterns will be the feature of this year’s Festival Parade, representing not only our respect for the natural environment, but also TFF’s commitment to planting the seeds of creativity and music in our young people. The lanterns will then be displayed by their makers in the community.

WORKSHOPS WILL BE HELD 11-19th OCTOBER 2022:
Ravenshoe: Tues 11th
5:30-8:30pm   |   Sat 15th 10-1pm   |   Mon 17th 5:30-8:30pm
