while in charleston, faith and i *christened* her new studio with a prayer flag workshop. i believe a happy life must involve flags for every (and any) occasion - one might say i have a slight flag/garland/banner obsession (and one might be right) - they are cheerful, can be made out of anything (i've tried) and for any reason...find me a reason not to make flags, go on - i dare ya!
we began our creative day with a nature mandala and a circle to share and choose an intention for ourselves...honoring this time to come together and create ! it was such a lovely group of women and we bonded right away - i love the connections that can form between a group of women and the energy and excitement in making happy things!
with baskets of colourful and inspiring fabrics and materials, some fun mixed media techniques, imagination, sharing and soulful intentions each woman in the group created individual flags to be strung together in a colourful and joyful way. happy to have been there to share in these creations and witness the smiles of the proud flag bearers!
