Special thanks to the Aurora History Museum for their continued support and partnership with PASCO. It was a sold out event with new participants and returning participants from last year’s workshop!
This workshop was to share with the community, one of the Filipino traditions of “parol” (or lantern) making. The parol dates back to 1928 by an artisan named Francisco Estanislao and is displayed during the Christmas season. The traditional parol was made of bamboo sticks and covered with papel de Hapon (Japanese paper). The lantern was originally made to light the paths to and from the church during Misa de Gallo (an early morning mass before dawn).
