In our Peer Mentorship group participants have the opportunity to learn how to upcycle furniture. The process we teach is painting. Did you know that painting helps with healing? Also, painting is a spiritual practice and painting and praying can go naturally together. This is a creative practice, and Wildflower Enterprises offers the space for individuals to practice this.
Pictured here is Samantha. We are so proud of all she has accomplished with her first upcycled project. She has designed this stool, and told a beautiful story. She is a survivor of violence, and as she was painting the stool she discussed how she wants to help other women who have experienced violence like she has. The colors she chose for this stool is a message she wrote for other survivors. This is her message for other survivors.
We are incredibly proud of Samantha! She is helping us discover what this peer mentorship program can be in rural PA. This stool is for sale for $40. Samantha will get the funds from her design to help her continue into transition to peaceful life after violence. To purchase this stool contact us here:
