A 1708 GALLERY EXHIBITION

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2017

Lantern-Making Workshops & Community Lantern Parade


Each year, InLight Richmond kicks off with a Community Lantern Parade. The lanterns are created by children and adults alike at workshops, schools, and homes in the months leading up to the exhibition. 1708 Gallery organizes a series of lantern-making workships throughout the fall to provide an opportunity for Richmonders to participate in InLight. The 2017 schedule will includes free, family-friendly workshops for all ages and skill levels encouraging all participants to explore their creative side.

Schedule of workshops coming soon!

In addition to the public workshops, 1708 Gallery is pleased to present workshops for a variety of community organizations and schools in the Richmond region. For more information or to schedule a workshop, please call 804.643.1708 or email Erin Willett, Gallery Coordinator, at ewillett@1708gallery.org

Feel free to join in the festivities and make your own lantern for InLight Richmond 2017. See below for links to instructions.
