About The Event
This course runs over 3 dates - May 2, 9, and 16. Attendance to all 3 is strongly recommended.
Flags have been and continue to be a public declaration of deeply held beliefs. There is symbolism, meaning and connection in the visual representation of a flag. Throughout the three sessions, we will aim to ask ourselves: What message is within me that I want to share? Led by Jeff Macklin of Jackson Creek Press, participants will learn about the historical use of textiles and flags in activism, explore messaging, colour, and composition, and utilize lino printing, stamps, sewing, and painting to work on their own piece. Participants will also have the opportunity to work on a collaborative creation. No prior experience needed.
This workshop is aimed at activists, advocates, volunteers, helping professionals, and anyone with a message they want to share.
- Familiarize ourselves with the history and impact of flags in activism
- Learn basic linocutting, sewing, and composition as tools for flag making
- Make meaningful art in community

Gift economics is a different way of interacting with money and understanding what something is “worth.” In a Gift model, goods and services are not sold as they are in a market model of economics. Rather, they are given freely with no requirement of an exchange. We believe that the lessons and teachings we give and receive in our workshops are priceless.
At the same time, we do have needs as an organization operating within the current economic and social structures. Therefore, all participants in our community workshops are offered an opportunity to support our work. No one is required to give, and no amount is considered too small or too large.
