Studio Prayer Flags

This class is a fast fun fabric collage experience. We will create a prayer flag string with fabric collage, paint, stamp, screen print and stitch that will delight you each time you see it and remind you of what is important. 

I made my first studio prayer flag 10 years ago and every day as I enter my studio it continues to remind me of my intentions for my art and my life. Prayer flags can be reminders like mine or pure celebrations of joy.

This class is going to be a fast fun fabric collage experience. We will create a prayer flag string with fabric collage, paint, stamp, screen print and stitch that will delight you each time you see it and remind you of what is important.

Student supply list:

  • Fabrics:  an assortment of fabrics in your favorite colors-any fabrics can be used. No more than a grocery bag full. You can bring some supple papers to use as well.
  • Threads: A small assortment of hand/embroidery and sewing machine threads. I will have some so if space is tight don’t bring any.
  • Needles and stuff: hand sewing needles, readers, thimble and additional lighting as needed.

Instructor: Liz Kettle

Why I Sew:

I have been intrigued with stitching since I was a child. I have never lost the feeling that something magical happens when you combine fabric and stitch. There are just so many possibilities….will this fabric want to be a bag, a journal cover, or a skirt or become part of a special story in collage?

Fabric is such a malleable material. It can be draped, sculpted, textured or smooth. Stitching is so incredibly satisfying….why would anyone not sew?
