Show 1508 - Working with Intention: Expand Your Skills with Prayer Flags

Featuring: Valerie C. White / Elizabeth Hartman

Posts On: October 13, 2014


Explore new techniques—and have lots of fun!—as mixed-media textile artist Valerie C. White reveals the pleasures and rewards of creating prayer flags from leftover fabric scraps. Valerie, one of 44 artists invited by the Historical Society Museum in Washington, D.C. to create a quilt celebrating the 2008 election of Barack Obama, shows how she produces her thoughtfully constructed little (5" x 11") artworks, and shares ideas for enhancing them with hand and machine stitching, paint sticks, watercolor pencils, and markers. Then we switch gears for a field visit with busy Oregon quilter Elizabeth Hartman. Elizabeth—known for her clean Modern style, use of bright color, and masterful handling of negative space—demos her favorite technique for making pieced letters.
