Godalming United Church

Godalming, Surrey, England

The church wanted to create a banner that represented the entire congregation (all ages) but also represented the congregation's outreach to the community and the world. I created a design featuring rainbow colored circles of hands radiating out from the central cross. Half of the hands faced inwards, towards the cross, and the other half of the hands faced outward. I traced the hands of all the adults, youth, and toddlers in the congregation, enlisting the help of volunteers to gather hand tracings from those in the hospital or in nursing homes. I traced these outlines onto the colored fabrics and used iron-on fusing to attach them to the banner. So the whole church was literally part of the banner. It became meaninful later on, as some members of the congregation deceased, to know that their hands were still present on the banner.
The banners were created with iron-on fusing and cotton and felt fabrics.
