The Advent Banners in Unity of Madison
By Carol McCullough-Dieter
I had the pleasure of working with a wonderful group of women to create the Advent banners that are hanging in the church for the Advent season (Figure 1). Hand painting silk is a many-step process, which I learned from a talented artist on Maui, who creates kimonos and fabric by the yard for other artists. I have made scarves, pillows, silk shirts, and even toys with my own hand painted silk.
