Leah worked with the students to collect used clothing, scraps of material and other recycled objects. She encouraged the students to write their thoughts and memories on the fabric and to cut the fabric and either sew or crochet the pieces back together. 

“The process of working is therapeutic, I record my thoughts and memories on the fabric as a way to get to know who I am." - Leah Virsik
