The Restoration Project
There is something inherently uplifting about restoring furniture. It speaks to renewal, as well as restoration. It requires patience and a sense of sequence. Restoring furniture is a craft to be learned with each piece. For some, there are striking parallels between the restoration of a piece of furniture and the journey towards wellness and recovery. Just as each piece of furniture is different, so too is each person's process of recovery. At the Restoration Project
, through mentoring, people living with mental illness are able to work to restore furniture, and to work on their own recovery, too.
