Door of Hope / by Kristen

Joe's Place offers homeless teenage boys in the Maplewood, MO area a place to live while they're in school. PROCESS: For the project, I was given an old door to transform. I chose the theme of hope as influenced by the charity's action of literally opening a door and offering hope. I began the work by penciling the word HOPE on the door. Then I outlined the word by tacking nails into the wood. I next wove the string around the nails in such a way that the word HOPE appeared in the negative space. I really enjoyed this project & working for such a great cause.
