Mixed Media Prayer Flags
Prayer Flag - Rusty fabric & mixed media
September 13, 2019
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us for a great project! We will use Rust-Dyed Fabric in a Mixed Media Prayer Flag! Using the Ephemera Paducah stash of ribbons, lace, and adornments, we’ll show you how to incorporate a little Mixed Media Magic in your hand-stitching. And there will be stenciling with Kristin’s hand-stitching StencilGirl Stencils!
Allow 1.5 – 2 hours for this project. Pop between 1-3:30 pm (we’ll let the last folks start at 3:30) $25 if you pre-register, $32 at the door.
Supplied: banner/base for your flag, rusted fabric, oodles of goodies from the Ephemera Paducah stash, paints for stenciling and who knows what else!
Bring your favorite hand sewing items like scissors, needles, thimble, & pincushion.
If you take the Rust Lust class earlier in the week, you can bring your fabric to incorporate in your project! Details on that class are here: Rust Lust
A Word about The Prayer Flag Project: Vivika Hansen DeNegre started this project. In her own words: “The idea of making a series of Prayer Flags has long been on my mind. The Prayer Flag Project began with an inspiration. Prayer Flags are part of the ancient Buddhist tradition. My family has several strings hanging in our home… not because we are Buddhist or even know what the writing or symbols upon the colored fabrics mean, but because they are beautiful and a reverent reminder that our prayers are heard and answered. In a nutshell, it is believed that the prayers on the flags are lifted to God and spread throughout the universe as they flutter in the wind. Everyone who is touched by that wind is touched by the prayers. The wind spreads the prayers through the world, extending happiness, goodwill, and peace.” What a wonderful concept. Chris Janne introduced Ephemera Paducah to the Prayer Flag Project, and now many hang on our patio fence. I love it when she says, “Don’t stress over making it! It’s meant to hang outside!” Paint, stamp, write with a permanent marker, hand sew, bead, or use anything that makes you smile to make your Prayer Flag. Write a word or phrase! Pray for peace, a good harvest, or someone you love.
