Throughout December and January beautiful stars will light Stoke Newington's main shopping streets.
Stoke Newington Business Association have teamed up with local company Output Arts to offer a series of FREE eco star lantern-making workshops for local schools and businesses and for the community. The finished stars will be displayed in the windows of local businesses and homes to brighten things up this winter.
Local businesses are invited to sign up to a star-making workshop on October 19th . Please visit this Eventbrite page for details.

More about the project
The stars, which will be made in partnership with the wonderful Output Arts, represent the invisible lines that connect us as a community.
They'll appear in shop windows, complementing the existing light installation at the Old Church and new ones at the Fire Station on Church St and St Paul's Church on the High St.
Local schools will take part in a lantern parade along Stoke Newington Church St on December 3rd assembling for a light switch on event at the Fire Station.
Constellations has been made possible thanks to funding from Hackney Council's High Street Recovery Grant.
Our thanks go to Location Location for producing the video.
