A parol is a colourful star-shaped ornament or lantern that is ubiquitous in the Philippines at Christmas time. It represents hope and peace and the triumph of light over darkness. In this workshop you will learn to make a simple parol using accessible and upcycled materials… perfect for displaying in your window and showing off your crafting skills and festive spirit. Maligayang Pasko! (For a preview of what we will be doing, check out this video on CBC's website.)

Free, everyone welcome! Registration required. All materials provided.
