Want to be part of the Lōemis Winter Solstice Procession? Join us for this deep sea fish lantern-making workshop, run by Jim Davenport, where you can make your very on lantern to carry alongside our festival Effigy before we set it aflame on June 22nd! This year’s effigy is designed around ideas of fish, ocean pollution, and sustainability. Learn how to create a glowing, paper-mache lantern. It could be a mini world that can be cradled and protected during our Solstice Ritual, or a round deep sea fish disciple to our effigy. Workshop attendees will learn easy, fun and effective ways to create their own unique piece.
