The Fence Festival

For the first weekend of our Israel Artist in Residency, Janice and I will be particpating in ” The Fence Festival”. This will take place at  Kibbutz  Gesher Ha Ziv http://www.gesherhaziv.org.il/, in the Western Galilee near the Lebanon border. Janice and I will be working with children in a building that was once a chicken coop ( at least that ‘s what Amir, the festival organizer, told us). Janice made this wonderful wallhanging incorporating photos and messages  from our mosaic Planting for Peace Project  here in Akron. The Israeli children will have the opportunity to  cut, sew, decorate  and stuff soft sculpture flowers and write their own messages to hang on the quilt!!

All this before we even start doing  mosaics  with older school kids on Sunday morning!
