THIS IS AN ALL-LEVEL WORKSHOP THAT COMES STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART TO GUIDE YOU TO MORE MEANINGFUL ART.


The most gratifying art is the kind that elicits an indescribable response from a viewer, a feeling of kinship, appreciation, and understanding. Prayer Flags and Blessing Banners have always done this. A Prayer Flag is a two-fold manifestation of love.

  • First, it is an object of beauty, skillfully crafted to grace the eye with visual enchantment.
  • Secondly, it is a tangible carrier of words of hope and humanity.

In this workshop, you'll learn five different ways to create prayer flags and blessing banners that are true works of art enhanced with a universal message that connects the maker with the viewer.

Lyn Belisle, beloved teacher and artist, shows you how to use simple techniques such as fusing paper and fiber, transferring images, dyeing fabrics with unexpected materials, recycling photos of your own work into bright banners, and making translucent flag collages with tissue and beeswax.

Briana Saussy, respected author and spiritual mentor, prepares you by sharing 365 practical everyday blessings to use as your springboard to inspire authentic work with a personal and meaningful message.

This is a workshop that will enchant you with new ways to create mixed-media works that will delight the eye and the soul. Everyone who has ever made a wish, everyone from beginners to masters, will find that this workshop is a creative blessing!
