“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees or the stars; you have a right to be here. Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.” (Max Erhmann, 1927)
This quote is from a favorite poem of mine, that I included in the goodmakes “ baby-shower” workshop I ran in Copenhagen a few weeks ago.
Today I am designing a fabric from the linocut prints we made, inspired by our own memories of childhood and the experiences and values of this world we would like to share with these two new beautiful beings.
I designed the goodmakes workshop format to be adaptable so that I could work with diverse groups of people, sharing their stories to inspire the fabric design. So far I have worked with children, migrants, at-risk teenagers, the elderly but this was the first time designing a fabric in celebration of new life.
Watch this space for the new fabric design!
