Illumination: the conversation centerpiece

Illumination: the conversation centerpiece


Illumination is a conversation centerpiece. It creates connections within a room, across the country, and around the globe. Each kit contains all the supplies needed for a storytelling activity that builds up to the creation of a multi-sensory tabletop lantern.

This handmade game is designed to be played with a group of friends or family. It gives you the chance to become closer to each other and share lasting memories as you build a unique lantern. When the fun is over, the lantern becomes a time capsule which allows you to travel back in time and relive the stories again and again.

Each handmade kit comes with a special letter from one of the Welcome Project artisans. The letter gives your group a glimpse into her stories, allowing her to join your gathering from afar.

Illumination is made for groups of friends and family numbering anywhere between 2 and 24 people and is recommended for those over the age of 10.
