We know that you’ll be making beautiful lanterns in the month of September!


Some of them will be inspired by our artists Simon, Flavia, Chloe and Lisa and their own lanterns that you’ll find here.


You may also want to make your own lanterns inspired by your own surroundings. This new initiative is for you!

What we are proposing is the creation of a joint lantern-making recipe book! We will publish a selection of your lanterns, according to the criteria established below.

Send us a photo of your lantern and a description of the steps that you have followed.

This autumn, we will publish a digital book on our website with the winning entries. It will serve as a souvenir of this year's event and as inspiration for next year's participants! There will be a prize in each category.  
No need to design a complicated lantern. 

We’re sure that yours will be beautiful in any case! 

The other lanterns published in the book will receive a $10 gift certificate.
