UPCYCLING & INCLUSIVITY – WORKSHOP
A creative experience in a community of mental sick beautiful people.
We started touching and feeling the little swatches of denim, then writing on the fabric with markers, doing trials as it happen industrially! We were playing with words, with techniques, with colors. What surprised me more is the purity behind every single word and action. I’m so used to work with young designers who needs lots of research before showing their idea that I did not expect to meet such a pureness!
Look at the words they choose, how delicated are color combo, how much JOY and LOVE there is inside a person that is considered – not normal. So what is normal?
We then got a huge swatches book from interior textile company: here the energy was turned on by the colors, the texture, combinations.
What can we do with all of this beautiful textile? Here I felt the need of giving each person the possibility to choose what the like the most. One guy with big hands loved to create the lace made of beads for the little bags, another one liked making color combo for patchwork table cloth, someone else did like hand sewing.
Look at this!
Why don’t we create a community of people willing to support mental health with creativity and upcycling?
