Your Family Journey Collage

Everyone is invited. No experience required. Drop in and have fun creating a Family Journey Collage on Saturday, November 14, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or Sunday, November 15, from noon until 6:00 p.m. Canvases and mixed media supplies will be provided in the Fellowship Hall. Feel free to bring 1 to 12 of your own photos, as well as mementos to help tell the story of Your Family Journey. The collages, ranging in size from the size of a sheet of paper to about twice that size, will adorn our sanctuary from Advent through Epiphany. Our family journeys will complement the Holy Family’s Journey to and from the Stable. To help tie all the collages together, each collage will include at least one of the specialty fabrics provided.

Start thinking about and looking for the “Stable” images, symbols, and expressions that might help tell your family journey. What has helped your family come together, stay together, grow and/or move? Are there particular foods, places, people, events, activities, celebrations, challenges, possessions, clothing, jewelry, clocks, furniture pieces, hearts, wings, books, equipment, tools, supplies, issues, subjects, seasons, etc., that pull your family or families together or apart?

After Epiphany, you may take your collage and keep it, give it away, or try to sell it. Donation to offset costs are welcome, but not required. We are hoping to get 50 collages made! We will gladly help anyone who wants help. We will have sample collages and plenty of magazines, fabric, paint, markers, glue, tape, textured paper, and bits and pieces of this and that for sharing.
