SAN MARCOS–In conjunction with the 2014 Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Mega Show and in coordination with the newly formed Fabric Arts Council’s Banners of Hope project, Charity Wings is presenting 24 hours of world-wide crafting events to be streamed live starting on January 15 at noon and ending at noon on January 16.
The “Banners of Hope” project features fabric-based banners created before and during the CHA Mega Show to express messages of hope and encouragement in an artistic format.
During the 24-hour Hope-a-thon, Charity Wings Art Center will sponsor 48 live-streamed technique demonstrations and workshops by internationally renowned artists so that viewers worldwide may contribute their own banners of Hope to the project.
The community is invited to attend this free event where they will be guided to create their own banner of hope to become part of a traveling exhibit that will be displayed in locations such as hospitals, children’s centers and shelters to benefit those in challenging circumstances.
Charity Wings Art Center is a nonprofit corporation engaged in providing creative arts programming for other non-profits serving at-risk and challenged populations, as well as fund-raising projects for charities worldwide. The Charity Wings Art Center is a place for people of all ages to Gather, Give Back and Create.
