Flag Workshop

In late November I reconvened the Corona Chronicles workshop participants, along with a couple new members, for a class with the flag as theme. We met weekly via Zoom until Inauguration week. Here are the results of our work together.

Collaborative flag project, 21" x 40". Each participant was given a section of blue and a section of stripes to cover as they wish. The resulting flag is amazingly cohesive and powerful.
