‘Parol’ Lantern Making Project
Making traditional Philippine lanterns was one of our first project. Bamboos and materials are sourced from the Philippines. We wanted to share this tradition during Christmas season to everyone particularly to families from all backgrounds are welcome. They make their own lanterns from scratch, they can let their creativity go and decorate their lanterns to take home.
This year we are running it at the Museum of London Docklands! Find out more here
