Light Up the Garden & Lynden by Night

Sunday, January 18, 2015 - 3 pm-6:30 pm


Fee: Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.
Registration: Advance registration required; email us at to let us know you're attending, and how many there will be in your party. Please note: the lantern-making portion of this program is now full, but all are welcome to bring their own lanterns and join us for the walk at 5 pm.

What better way to experience Lynden in the winter than by lantern light? Join Jeremy Stepien in the art studio beginning at 3 pm for this popular annual family workshop to make a lantern (or bring your own). Visitors of all ages can enjoy designing and decorating lanterns made from recycled jars and tea light candles. Embellishments include tissue paper collage, punched-tin lids, and reeds and wires (for handles). Make your own or work together to create a lantern for your group.

At 5 pm we embark on a lantern-lit walk through the garden, led by naturalist Naomi Cobb. She will guide you safely through Lynden's back acres, introducing you to the mysteries and unique features of outdoor life after dark. We'll end with a bonfire and hot cider.

The garden will open at noon as usual; the walk will begin at 5 pm.
