1978 Maplewood Arts Center is sponsoring significant beading workshops, "Bead for Peace." The project's mission is to support women's organizations and individuals who foster work for reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. The program is directed by Maya Bloom, an educator, noted crafts person, botanist and a native of Jerusalem
The workshops are Monday, March 22 from 1 to 3:30 PM and from 7 to 9 PM as well as Sunday, April 11 from 12 to 3 PM. To register go to firstname.lastname@example.org . Finished projects will be exhibited at the Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall.
The impact of war and terror in the Middle East and the world cannot be resolved only politically. “Women today, from all religions and backgrounds are ready to take an active part to make positive change and should be supported. Women give birth to the next generation. Their voice, actions and role is wider today and must be supported and encouraged.” Reports Maya.
Beading is an ancient skill that women traditionally took part in since early times, throughout the world. It is a skill, occupation, a means of artistic endeavor, expression, recognized all over the world. It can be done individually as well as collaboratively.
Mya reports “My idea came after volunteering among villages in Israel after the 2007 war. I met families who live near the northern border of Israel and friends who live across from the Gaza border. I observed the impact of long time war on their life.”
“My motivation came as a crafter with over thirty years ivolvement in the arts and realizing its powerful impact on human life.”
