Since 2012 I’m studying at the Design Academy in Eindhoven at the Man and Leisure department.
We spend so many time sitting next to each other.
Waiting for the time to go by.
Wanting to do something.
Refugees are spending months waiting in refugee camps. Where they often have nothing to do. Through knitting de Breiwacht brings these waiting people together. You can take your mind off your problems and worries. You share your knowledge and stories while creating something nice and useful.
The Breiwacht collects knitting and crochet needles and wool from people who have these things laying at home but don’t make use of it anymore.
