This peace garden project for children was client-led (Primary 4–6), with the guidance of the practitioner. Initial responses and ideas were explored, through workshops which combined practical skills and creative thinking.

The children were introduced to meditation, and then designed and created their own silk flags, inspired by Tibetan prayer flags. The collaborative work was enriched through the depth of collective reflection.

Materials: silk, silk paints, earth, seeds, water.
