Dream Job #2: Knitting with Inmates


A few weeks ago I blogged about making paper and bookbinding with Veterans in their healing spaces. Today I chanced upon another art healing initiative in a Baltimore penitentiary. According to one of the men “Real Men Knit Pink”. I would cherish the opportunity to work with incarcerated women or men to create beautiful things. To create beauty in a place of punishment is to manifest an alternative inner-world that can affect the individual’s experience of place, of self and ideas of possibility.

Blogging to a great future,
Shawndel
