A generation after the burlap-and-felt pieces of the sixties, these fabric hangings are made especially for church spaces that lack extensive permanent and structural art work, or that require visual enrichment for a specific liturgical season or holy day. They combine lovely, high-quality fabrics, stitching, heat bonding, and acrylic painting, and are hung on walls, from rafters, or on free-standing display racks. The largest of the banners here is 48"w x 72"l; they will be made sized to order. Hangings may also be made for private homes in smaller sizes.
Banners may be commissioned directly or through thedomesticmonastery.com, in Avon, Connecticut (860-914-8226). Prices begin at $300.00 for the smallest sizes.
