Next meeting: Saturday, June 12, 2021


Back home, at St. Matthew Lutheran Church!

800 North New Road, Waco, Texas  10 am 

After 14 months away, the Waco Calligraphy Guild will be in our regular meeting place for the June meeting, thanks to the church board. Hallelujah! Social distancing will be observed with table placement; please bring and wear a mask. In addition to meeting in person, we will also plan a Zoom link for those who prefer to stay home or are out of town. The Zoom link will be emailed to all members the day before the meeting.

June program: Prayer flags

Prayer flags/banners have been around for thousands of years, but todays artists are putting their own spin on the ancient tradition. A growing number of people are using these small but meaningful flags as an outlet for expressing their hopes, and the design possibilities are endless. It essentially begins with an INTENTION that can be expressed in a meaningful word, phrase, or image. We will be creating two things:

As a group, we are creating a banner for St. Matthew Lutheran Church as a reuniting gift that can be hung in their foyer. Each person will write a WORD or MESSAGE OF GRATITUDE on one flag portion in the hand that they prefer. You can use markers, colored pencils, or watercolor.

Individually, you will use cardstock to begin creating the shape of your individual flag pieces. Lisa will have banner templates on hand for you to use. For your individual flag you are welcome to embellish your pieces as you wish and as time allows. Some prayer flags are made with fabric and can be placed outside on display in your garden! They bring added beauty to any environment.

If you have any questions prior to our gathering in June, please reach out and email Lisa at:
