Goffstown Public Library is excited to welcome Younhee Shin, who will lead a 90-minute craft workshop in the art of traditional Korean lotus lanterns. These lanterns use wire frames and colored paper to symbolize lighting up the world with purity and wisdom. Younhee will provide information on how the lotus lanterns are used in Korean culture, as well as step-by-step instructions on completing the craft. Each participant will leave with a stunning lantern to display in their home and a greater appreciation for Korea's people and traditions.
Younhee Shin is the program coordinator for the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project. The KSCPP is a not-for-profit, non-government organization dedicated to the promotion of greater awareness and understanding of Korean history and culture. Among other things, the KSCPP gives lectures and presentations on Korean history and culture for those who are interested in widening their perspective.
You can attend this program either in-person, where Younhee will appear to us on the big screen, or virtually, where you'll join Younhee on the Zoom call. Make your selection in the registration form.
All supplies are provided whether you choose to attend personally or virtually. And don't forget to wear comfortable clothes to get messy while crafting; you never know what can happen during the creative process!
Registration is required - this workshop is for adults ages 17 and older.
