Instructor: Liz Kettle
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.

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?
