As part of Art in the Image’s textile cottage industry I would like to introduce our Liturgical Banner line!
These are homemade appliquee-style banners. What is appliquee?- Good question- I thought I was just not good at quilting, but it turns out appliquee is a style unto itself, where pieces of fabric are sew directly over top of another fabric.
The banners represent the colors of the liturgical seasons. White and gold are the colors for the season of Christmastide and Epiphany. Lent’s liturgical colors are purples. Easter season’s color is white. Pentecost’s color is red. During Advent the color blue often appears with significance. These season’s colors all have significance and are used in different ways and to different degrees in different traditions.
I produce these banners as orders are received. The size of the pictured banners is 24 inches by 90 inches. This is a standard size, but if you need a different size we can negotiate. These banners are a modern take on the tradition of using banners to represent liturgical seasons.
Orders can be received through our Etsy Store ArtInTheImageStudio (click here)
Here are photos of the creation process. Keep in mind when ordering that it will take up to 4 weeks to process as the banners are commissioned when you order them, so think ahead for the next liturgical season for your congregation.
