Dreams and A Heart Workshop
Posted on 24 February, 2015 by Becky
Come along to the ‘Dreams and A Heart’ Workshop and help Regina Mendes put hearts into the dolls, enjoy a little bit of sewing and some good conversations.
In 2011, Regina Mendes came up with the idea of the ‘Dreams and A Heart’ project, making one doll that represents each one of us in the world.
“More than an idea it was a deep feeling of ‘I must do it’! Although I have never sewed in my life I bought a little sewing machine and learnt how to make them. It was then that I realised it would be quite difficult to reach a target of 7 billion! So, with my feet back on the ground, I started cutting the zeros. I thought 70 was too few so I added one more zero -700- it is a lot but possible. I would not be making one doll to one person but a percentage that would represent each continent.
Each doll is roughly the same size and colour, the colour of our bones, suggesting that we are all the same regardless of our little differences. They are all stuffed with the filling from old pillows which are full of dreams and each one has a heart.” Regina Mendes
The ‘Dreams And a Heart’ project claims to be helping this suffering world to become happier, healthier and more just.
