What is your group’s artwork about?
“Our first session was a planning one. We began by listing what we most like about our church and what we would like to see in the future. Then we fitted these into the mission statement of our church “Worshipping, witnessing and serving in the way of Christ” which provided the three part structure for the design. The background we filled with people.
Our second session was putting this onto the calico with fabric crayons. Later it was ironed and a border added. The panel was displayed in the church’s ‘art space’ for the month of November.”
