Homage to Rust and Leaves

Lorri Scott
9:00 - 4:30
Sunday March 20

[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

In this class we will pay homage to leaves and rust by botanical and dye printing fabrics to create individual fabric vignettes that can be tied together to form a modern day prayer flag. We will use vintage fabrics along with torn fabrics of silk, cotton, and linen.

Traditionally prayer flags are used to promote peace, strength, compassion and wisdom. The messages are believed to be carried by the wind to the people. Today they are a simple loving and artistic way to connect hearts with others and these particular flags carry a message from nature.

We will add ink jet printed fabric scenes, words, stitching, lace, collaged fabrics, whatever your heart desires to our modern, nature themed prayer flags. Each vignette will be stitched to a torn muslin strip that has been used in the dye process and in turn is dyed.

At the end of class we will have several individual prayer flags, which you can choose to hang individually or tie together to form a garland.

Materials Fee $20 paid at beginning of class includes:
