Students of Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering

The project Chairs for Nursing Mothers is somewhat a continuation of last year’s project entitled Textiles to Enrich the World of Sick Children (items produced for the Department of Psychiatry), and the results of both projects were presented as gifts to the University Children’s Hospital in Ljubljana.

Our basic idea has been to engender the somewhat lab-whiteness of a hospital with a more colourful ambiance and to use the primordial warmth of textiles created by women; and with the aid of imagination and creativity, to invoke a sense of ease and comfort. We believe that we have located a niche of mutual communication, a project that is very personal and, at the same time, public: something from women to women, or, put in a broader context, human creativity for the benefit of nursing mothers and their infants.

The project is in its initial stage because it is - by its nature - a process; and it will continue as a sort of ongoing mosaic composed of individual visual stories. All are free to participate with their personal expression of ideas and emotions in the chair throws for nursing mothers. Marjeta Godler
