The project is a collaborative visual art piece in which Shelley will teach a workshop for participants to make a simple sewn fabric object that is historically connected to ideas of hope and new beginnings. The workshop will precede a temporary exhibit/installation of all of the pieces participants create side by side with work from past workshops and exhibits, totaling over 200 pieces to date.
