REF NO.: 239

SUBJECT: Chinese lantern workshop opportunity for "grown-up" kids create a light-hearted Mother's Day gift

DATE: May 5

Looking for a gift that will light up your Mother's Day... and evenings?

This Saturday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the Division of Lifelong Learning is sponsoring a Chinese garden lantern workshop for adults, with St. John's visual artist Mykila Martin.

The three-hour workshop will give the "grown-up" kids out there a chance to craft a one-of-a-kind present their mothers can enjoy all summer long.

Of course, participants don't have to have their mothers in mind when building a lantern. They're welcome to make the lantern for themselves.

"The lanterns are fun to make and they give off a warm, relaxing light that is perfect for summer evenings on anyone's deck," Ms. Martin says.

Cost of the workshop includes the materials for one lantern.

For more information, please contact Memorial's Division of Lifelong Learning, 737-7979.
