• Free Stained Glass Workshops 2019 In Support of Kids in Bangladesh

    October 31, 2019
    “Autumn Wonder,” “Brain Freeze,” “Pink Sky,” and “Home” are just a few titles of stained glass artwork created by local students for last year’s For Kids’ Sake (FKS) Art Auction. These four pieces alone raised $265, enough to support an orphan in Bangladesh for nearly six months.
    This November, a student you know can create their own stained glass masterpiece to support their peers in Bangladesh. Local students of all ages are invited to attend two FKS Stained Glass Workshops on Sunday Nov. 10 and Sunday Nov. 17 from 1-3pm at the Dayemi Community Center, 218 N. Illinois Ave, in Carbondale, IL.
    Registration is free, and all materials and instruction are provided. Finished pieces will be considered donations to the 20th Annual FKS Art Auction. Accepted pieces will be custom-framed and hung in the Longbranch Café & Bakery during the 20th Annual FKS Art Auction from March 10 – April 24, 2020. All proceeds will support orphans and students in Bangladesh.
    Each student will be guided through the process of creating stained glass art; no previous experience is required. Students can participate in one or both of the workshops. Space is limited; call 618-529-5044 to reserve a spot today.
    For Kids’ Sake is a local 501c(3) non-profit that supports orphans and students in Bangladesh. See flyer below for details.
