Glow Lanterns

Last Christmas, due to Covid-19 restrictions, Christmas light switch on events up and down the country were cancelled. This year, Seed are working with Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge to bring you another fun, free creative activity.

Make a paper bag lantern!

Together with Create You in Highbridge, we have produced another lantern kit, this time using the paper bags the kits are packed in to reduce packaging and waste. 

Create You are holding several free paper bag lantern walk in sessions. Come along to Create You in Highbridge on any of the following dates… 

Sunday 14th November 1.30-3.30pm

Thursday 18th November 10-12pm 

Sunday 21st November 1.30-3.30 pm 

I’m an eco lantern! This project has been designed to be as eco friendly as possible , by using locally sourced products and recyclable materials we have designed lanterns that will give the wow factor and still be able to be recycled at the end.
