If you've always wanted to make your own glowing Christmas lantern that's eco-friendly as well, then this special workshop coming just in time for Christmas is one you should plan on attending.

Run by Ecobotanica, an organisation centered on teaching simple, environmentally-friendly ways that can help you save time and money on costly alternatives, this workshop focused on mums and young children is a great one to participate in before the stores start charging extra for last-minute Christmas shopping. The workshops can assist anyone from a novice to a professional, with focus on food, art and everything environmentally-friendly.

And you can make your very own Christmas candle lantern, using natural and recycled materials, which will certainly make a unique addition to your decorations at home. Simply set it up at the dinner table, coffee table or doorway to spread natural light in a room or corridor. All materials are provided at the workshop, and as a bonus, there will be snacks and games provided for both the children and adults to keep everyone engaged.

This is a great opportunity to create some 'do-it-yourself' items, and also meet and interact with other enthusiasts. Cost is just $20 per child, and adults are free. Booking is essential, so please phone 3349 2962 or email for details. There will be two workshops, each one and a half hours long, in the morning and afternoon to give people a bit of choice in case you are a morning or afternoon kind of person.

The website also offers a range of advice and ideas that you can take up yourself at home; and you can sign up for a free e-magazine as well. There will be other workshops being held; so check out the website to stay in the loop and also find one that can suit your needs. With eco-friendly ways to make your home a better place, it's worth checking out. As an added bonus, you could even learn a new thing or two.

So take your little one to this special end-of-year workshop to make your very own glowing Christmas lantern. For more information, please visit the website.
