Lantern Craft Workshop

8th Dec 2023 , 4:30pm - Fairfield Halls Sun Terrace, Park Ln, Croydon CR0 1JD

Abeer Kayani, South Asian textile artist based in Southampton

Taking inspiration from her cultural roots, identity, heritage and experience as a diaspora, Abeer uses colours that are unique to botanical dyes from regions and tribes that specialise in repurposing kitchen waste to craft beautiful coloured cloth.

These workshops are designed with a festive theme featuring motifs from Islamic geometry, natural dye colours and fabric textures. Participants will be provided with a paper template of a lantern they can cut, decorate and assemble to take away to their homes. These lanterns are specific to the New Forest region.

This event is a highlight within the “This is Croydon” programme, featuring festive activities coordinated by local community organisations and multi-faith groups under the theme ‘A Very Croydon Christmas‘. For more details, visit this link.
