Pendle Hill’s vision is “to create peace with justice in the world by transforming lives.” Does that vision speak to you? Do you enjoy creating with fabric? Do you have experience with basic hand sewing? Join with other peacemakers and piece-makers to create a quilted work of art that expresses both your own fabric contribution and a shared vision of peacemaking in a quilted mandala.

The creative journey will begin with each participant playing with mixed media, reflecting, sketching, and capturing ideas in an art journal for the group project. Then the group will bring their ideas together to create a communal mandala quilt. Asake will guide participants in piecing together the quilt, which will be publicly displayed at Pendle Hill for all to experience. Music, meditation, journaling, and movement will be woven into the day’s art practice.
