Prayer Flags

Rooted in Buddhist tradition, modern prayer flags have become a means of creative expression – small works of fabric art containing wishes of peace, healing or whatever sentiment is close to the heart.

What better time to make prayer flags than the spring – the season of hope, renewal and change!

Local artist,
Shirley Bentsen will guide us through the creative process

Prayer flags are a gentle reminder that all is good.  They contain heartfelt messages…or sentiments…or intentions…or prayers that release into the universe as flags dance in the outdoor breeze.

Prayer flag samples will be available for inspiration!  Techniques used could be stamping, stenciling, painting, beading, sewing (hand or machine), appliqué

Consider making more than one and swap with friends or class mates!

This class is for creative adults into mixed media, altered art and good times!  No sewing experience necessary.
