“The collection seeks to empower the youth and women not to give up but focus on their goals irrespective of how painful or long it might be or take. This empowerment is shown forth through the fabric manipulation method use as it takes quite some time to do but results in a beautiful piece.”
In looking for materials for our design, one of our ladies Connie reminded me of the calabashes I had them buy some months back. It was the "Eureka" moment we had been looking for. Upon our research we found out the gourd was the best element to work with. It was natural, easy to create shapes with and most importantly light weight.
