Online: Diwali Festival Light Decorations

From 12.00

Happy Diwali! Folkestone Museum is proud to celebrate the Diwali Festival and invites you and your family to join us in making festival lights in our online tutorial on Facebook. 

Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights and symbolises the spiritual ‘Victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance’. The festival also gives people hope and positivity by sharing messages of love and happiness with friends and family. We’d love to see how your craft has turned out please post pictures on the video thread and any Diwali messages you would like to send out!

Autumn has arrived at Folkestone Museum. Join us online on Saturday 3rd October where we will be making some stained glass leaves. You can stick them onto a window, door or stand in front of battery tea lights to make them glow.
