Raise a Banner!
Creating Liturgical Art for Worship
May 21, 9 – 5
Optional Worktime: Saturday p.m./Sunday a.m.
Imagine worship without music. For many, worship would be the same way without creative visual expressions of the Spirit.
Join liturgical artist Hannah Garrity May 21 as we make our worship space come alive with handcrafted paper-cut banners! Floor-length banners will be designed, hand cut and installed during the weekend by participants. Hannah has created these text-based, sacred banners since 2013 as the summer liturgical artist for Montreat Conference Center, depicting scenes such as the Last Supper and King David on a journey. Our banners, cut from sturdy white photographic paper, will celebrate the Trinity, as May 22 is Trinity Sunday.
Cost: $30 including lunch & supplies. Deadline is May 14. Limit 30 participants.
Location: West Raleigh Presbyterian Church; 27 Horne St.
