Lunar New Year Decorative Lanterns
Why traditional lanterns?
It is traditional for the Chinese to decorate windows and doors with red paper, featuring themes of happiness, good fortune, longevity, and more.
In this workshop participants will make a lantern by binding a bamboo frame with paper and stretching fabric over it to decorate. All supplies and materials will be provided. Cosponsored by the Fairfax Library Foundation.
