The Makerettes, an all female-identifying maker group at Digital Harbor Foundation, have used digital design software to create intricate tea light lanterns that are then fabricated on our laser cutter.
We recommend using battery operated tea lights with the lantern.
These lanterns debuted at the Makerettes Be the Light Lantern Launch Party on December 13th. If you were unable to attend this event but still would like a lantern, you can purchase the lantern kit here on Blueprint!
Be the Light Installation
After creating your lantern, you can donate it to DHF to be displayed in our courtyard as part of the Be the Light installation in January. The Makerettes are excited to have the community join them in their mission!
The Makerettes are donating all of the profits to House of Ruth Maryland. House of Ruth is a non-profit organization fighting against domestic abuse. The Makerettes fell in love with House of Ruth’s mission and their dedication to women and children. The organization works to provide food, shelter, counseling, legal and other services to victims.
