Free Art-Making Workshops | August 3-8, 2019

Processional Arts Workshop is back by popular demand! This series of free art-making workshops takes place at Vizcaya Village August 3-8, 2019.

This is the fourth consecutive year of workshops where members of the community come together to build illuminated lanterns using a variety of different techniques, as led by Processional Arts Workshop co-directors Sophia Michahelles and Alex Kahn.

As in years past, the workshops will culminate WEAVE, in a twilight performance beginning at Vizcaya Village taking place on August 10, 2019, at 8:30 p.m. Participation in this performance is not mandatory, though highly encouraged.  Scroll down for more information on WEAVE, the final performance.


Workshops are completely FREE and all materials are provided. Spaces are limited and registration is required.

Workshops are free to the public and open to both children and adults. The workshops are geared towards adults and teens, though we welcome children 8 and up who are working with an adult. Each workshop has a maximum capacity, so registration is mandatory via Eventbrite.


The workshop series culminates in a twilight performance where all the illuminated lanterns come together for one spectacular evening. This year’s lantern parade, entitled WEAVE, explores the individual patterns, motifs, and textures that come together to create Vizcaya.

The performance takes place on Saturday, August 10, starting at 8:30 p.m. in Vizcaya Village. Tickets for the performance are $10 and can be purchased online.

Q: Do you have to be a specific age to participate in the workshops?
A: People of all ages are welcome to participate. Please note that the activities do require use of fine motor-skills, so the workshops are not recommended for children younger than 8 years of age.

Q: How many workshops do I need to attend?
A: As many as you like! There is no minimum requirement. You also do not need to attend a workshop to attend the performance.

Q: Can I register for more than one workshop?
A: Yes, you are welcome to participate in as many workshops as you like.

Q: What do I do if I need to change or cancel my reservation?
A: To make changes to an existing workshop registration, please email us or call 305.860.8423.

Q: If I participated in the workshop, do I have to pay to attend the performance?
A:  Workshop attendees are automatically registered to attend the twilight performance. Only people who physically attend the workshops are granted free admission. Tickets to the workshop are per person, not per workshop. Only one ticket is generated to the performance, regardless of how many workshops a person participates in.

Q: Can I participate as a cast member in the performance without going to the workshops? 
A: Yes, anyone can sign up to be a cast member and participation in the workshops is not required. You are, however, required to attend an orientation/rehearsal, scheduled for Friday, August 9 in the evening.

Q: How do I sign up to participate as a cast member in the final performance?
A: The option to sign up as a cast member is included in the registrations for workshops.  If you want to sign up as a cast member without attending a workshop, please email us or call 305.860.8423.


Processional Arts Workshop (PAW) creates site-specific works and Carnivalesque performances worldwide, always involving local volunteers in the creation of pageant puppetry, mobile architecture, and illuminated structures. They have created community-based performances for NY’s High Line, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Columbia University’s Miller Theatre, Socrates Sculpture Park, Katonah Museum of Art, and as master puppeteers for New York’s Village Halloween Parade. Globally they have collaborated with communities in Kiev, Istanbul, rural Italy, and Trinidad. Their work has been recognized with a Fulbright Scholarship; grants from the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation and CEC Artslink; and a Witt Fellowship at the University of Michigan. Learn more at

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a National Historic Landmark that preserves the Miami estate of agricultural industrialist James Deering to engage our community and its visitors in learning through the arts, history and the environment. Built between 1914 and 1922, Vizcaya is one of the most intact remaining examples from this era in United States history, when the nation’s most successful entrepreneurs built estates inspired by the stately homes of Europe. Vizcaya features a Main House filled with a decorative art collection, 10 acres of formal gardens, a rockland hammock (native forest), mangrove shore, and a historic village that is being restored to tell Vizcaya’s full story and provide additional spaces for programs and community outreach, including those on agriculture. Vizcaya has been a community hub since it opened to the public in 1953; it currently welcomes about 300,000 visitors annually.

Located on Biscayne Bay at 3251 South Miami Avenue, Vizcaya is open Wednesday through Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Closed Tuesdays, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. For more information, visit, connect via social media, or call 305-250-9133.
