In the Filipino language, a Christmas lantern is called a Parol. There’s no greater symbol of the Filipino Christmas spirit than this; it is our Christmas Tree. All through the Christmas season, star-shaped lanterns can be found hanging outside homes and along the streets of cities and small provincial towns, farms and fishing villages.
This Christmas, Philippine Generations is inviting everyone to take time away from the Christmas rush and join us to learn a new skill and keep this tradition alive. This will be our third year of hosting the parol workshop and it will be bigger and better than previous years. During the workshop you will learn how to make Filipino Christmas lanterns the traditional way, from bamboo sticks and rice paper. The workshop is open to everyone – young and old, Filipinos and non Filipinos, and across the range of artistic abilities.
