Signs of Life: Quilts and Meditation

 One Session(s)
Kathryn Greenwold All Skill Levels
Throughout time and in many different cultures, there are symbols which have similar meaning to the people. These symbols are basic and non-figural; they are the circle, square, triangle, spiral, and equidistant cross. We see these symbols in nature, art, fabric design, and quilt patterns. This lecture/workshop explores the similar meanings of these symbols and leads the participants in a personal exploration of the patterns they use in their quilts. Inspiration for this lecture and workshop came from the book, Signs of Life by Angeles Arrien.

In lecture only format, allow 1 hour

In workshop format allow 4 hours. The workshop is open to all skill levels. Participants will apply what they have learned from the lecture to create a small quilt that can be used as a prayer or meditation focus.
