Trees Atlanta Lantern Making Class

  • Trees Atlanta TreeHouse 112 Krog St NE Atlanta, GA, 30307 United States (map)

Come to the new TREES ATLANTA education center, called the TreeHouse, located right on the BeltLine and join us in a workshop to make your own tree-themed lantern for the Lantern Parade. Hold up a light for the BeltLine and the BeltLine Arboretum with Trees Atlanta! 

We are attaching pressed leaves to 20” green paper globe lanterns! The lanterns attach to a 5’ bamboo pole and have a 3-LED battery operated light, so you can hold up your Trees Atlanta Lantern and dance and walk with us on the day of the parade! Details on parade start and post-parade meet up will be shared at the workshop. We will have plenty of pressed leaves, but you are certainly encouraged to bring pressed leaves from your favorite tree. Putting your leaves between paper in a book with a weight on top for a few days does the trick! 

- Space is limited to 25. Register online.
- All materials, light, and batteries included. 
- Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. 
- Parking is limited. Please walk, if you can. If your bike has a rear rack, you can ride home with your lantern!
- This lantern workshop is lead by Chantelle Rytter and the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons and hosted by Trees Atlanta at the TreeHouse.

Your participation is what makes the magic!
