Condo Skyfest Lantern Workshops
Tue 23 MarchFREE
MIIMA WARRABINYA: REACHING FOR THE STARS.
This year’s SkyFest will be a truly stellar occasion with a very inclusive program that will delight people of all ages and of all backgrounds.
Our SkyFest program now includes specially choreographed ‘sky-dances’, original music compositions, a parade of illuminated sky-lanterns, interactive virtual reality projections, stargazing with professional astronomers, indigenous food, stalls, exhibitions, workshops, guided tours, an unforgettable grand finale, and some surprise guests.
On 23 March lantern artist Phil Relf, from Ikara Celebratory Events in Newtown, will work with Bev Coe and the artisans of the Condo Sista Shed to develop a series of
huge sky-lanterns for a spectacular sunset lantern parade. The following day, he will hold a master class at Condobolin Primary School with Condo’s Arts and STE(A)M teachers so they can show their students how to make lanterns and decorate them with sky-themed images, such as stars, planets, spaceships, and constellations for the parade.
We’d like every student in Condo to make and decorate a lantern. We’ll be awarding really good prizes for the best decorated lanterns and offering the winning lantern-makers
a lap of honour after the parade!
