With all the hardships and hurts worldwide this is a great time for teens to gather together and make their own original prayer flag.  Traditionally, prayer flags were used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom.

Your teens will each create their own unique flag using a wide variety of materials (textiles, stencils, collage materials, magazines, beads, hand made papers, items from nature etc.)

This is a poetic, powerful and fun workshop which involves incorporating textural layers, using a variety of mediums and including a personal message that your teen can be proud to send out to the world.
