Lantern workshops set at Port Angeles Fine Arts Center

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is hosting adult and youth-friendly workshops throughout the month of November, each as part of the lead up to the Wintertide Festival of Lights event on Dec. 10.

During the Festival of Lights, participants are invited to bring their lanterns and luminaries to join the community lantern walk through Webster’s Woods. That event includes a fire performance, interactive light art stations, music, vendors and a makers market.

On Wednesday, the Stained Glass Mosaic Lantern Workshop offered an introduction to working with glass, held at the arts center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

A more advanced workshop, the Origami Crane Luminary Workshop led by artist and returning instructor Nichole Rose, is set for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. today and Sunday.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, the arts center is teaming up with the Juan de Fuca Foundation for the Arts at their Art at the Market program. All are invited to make a simple lantern design for free, and the first 50 participants get a free ticket to the Wintertide Festival of Lights. No registration is needed.

Youths (ages 11-14) can attend a Sculptural Lantern Workshop from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday inside the center’s Esther Webster Gallery. And a Cocoon Lantern Workshop for youths of ages 7-12 is set for 2:45 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

Finally, the Cocoon Lantern workshop is set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 30 at MOSS, 104 W. First St., Port Angeles.

A Wintertide Festival of Lights ticket is included in the workshop registration fee for all workshops.

Community members can learn more about the workshops and register for them online at pafac.org/wintertideworkshops.

The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center also will host its annual Makers Market and Light Art Experience, both opening on Nov. 25. Shoppers will find a range of locally made gifts by 38 artists and artisans.
