When registering, if you would not like to purchase a lantern making kit, but would like to create in our studio and do your own thing, fill out the registration form but DO NOT process payment. We will record you on the list as an attendee and confirm attendance before the workshop.

To participate in the Light up the Lake lantern parade event on April 21st, you must have a lantern!
We invite residents and guests to come together as a community to share their creative spirit and parade with DeKalb School of the Arts community to celebrate their annual Fringe Festival event. The parade ends at the DSA campus for student performances and to kick off their Fringe Festival event!

We’re offering a variety of workshop experiences, some that are family and kid-friendly, based on your skill level (Level II moves beyond the standard paper lantern and pole) and also on whether you want an “adult only” night out of creating! Our adult only events are 21+.
