Tapestry Stories are a beautiful way to facilitate a creative art ministry session. This 40 minute course helps walk you through the steps to prepping for, leading and facilitating a creative weaving time to help others learn to tell their stories through the lens of God's presence and grace in the good and the hard. The creative sessions usually take around 1.5-2 hrs depending on the context and the tapestries can be done almost anywhere and are mobile enough for most spaces. This training is offered as a free resource from the Created Arts Ministry Program but is designed in the context of empowering others to begin leading art ministry sessions in their communities. Please contact us for more information on further training.

"As I have experienced freedom from perfection, my art has felt the results of it. I love mixed media, collage and acrylics. My favorite times of creating happen during worship and prophetic art- watching the Holy Spirit show up and speak in real time as my brush responds. There’s nothing like it."
