PRISON PROJECT - NEVE TIRZA
I was grateful to be part of collaboration between my fashion college 'Studio 6B' and Neve Tirza - Woman’s prison. I was one of a few students chosen to participate in a six months program teaching inmates design skills, pattern-making and sewing. I was allocated with a special woman with a fascinating life story to whom I imparted my fashion knowledge and guided through creative processes. Together we created a collection of garments with her chosen theme of Freedom, making use of motifs such as flowers, gardens and calmness.
Having connected to a woman from a different background and circumstances in a creative and learning environment, i was humbled and filled with gratitude and inspiration.
I was honoured to showcase one of the pieces at Midburn (Burning Man in Israel) which received media attention and appeared in billboards.
