Encouraging Banners

Katie has been making banners since 2015 after stumbling across Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July’s website Learning to Love You More. Visitors to the website are invited to accept an assignment, complete it by following the instructions and to send in the required report. Assignment 63 was to make an encouraging banner. Katie combines vintage woolen blankets and M&S sheeting with found advice. In a world awash with inspirational quotes that can often feel quite disingenuous she hopes that these banners provide no-nonsense life advice that help us to be a little kinder to ourselves.

Katie has a selection of banners (and A4 prints of banners) available to buy in her Etsy shop and is happy to accept commissions. Please email katiesmithartist@gmail.com for more information.
