Prayer Flags


I agreed to do a workshop for the Unitarian Universalist Women's Connection (UUWC) at their retreat in June at Pilgrim Park, near Princeton, Illinois.  The theme for the weekend is air and my workshop will focus on making Prayer Flags.  When I heard that I would have a little more than an hour for my workshop, I decided that I needed to try making some prototypes.

I spent this afternoon making prayer flags with two friends.  We used Pebeo Setacolor fabric paints from Dharma Trading Company, some miscellaneous acrylics, fabric markers, and Tulip spray on fabric paints on small nylon flag blanks from Dharma Trading Company.  I had a couple of stencils and we cut out some of our own.  One flag uses a wax crayon resist to create birds.

I think the flags are gorgeous and I am really pleased with how they came out.
