Join us at the Leighton Art Centre for an evening of lantern-making and star gazing!
The evening will begin with a lantern-making workshop led by one of the Leighton Centre's art educators. During the workshop, you will be invited to create a colorful lantern. This craft workshop is open to all ages! All the materials are included in the workshop.
Following the workshop, a brief talk about the large scale universe will be given by our guest speaker, Andres Zambrano, from the Physics Department of the University of Calgary. The evening will conclude with the opportunity to view the celestial landscape from a telescope, generously lent by the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory.
Make sure you wear a warm layer or two because the weather may be cool and crispy.
