Laila al-Wahdna is a 58-year-old retired school principal from Jerash. Her story began once she had retired and began to feel an emptiness in her life that she had not known before. Her working life had been full of achievement and continuous work, which she devoted to the next generations. Upon retirement, she decided to search online to learn about different forms of art, eventually choosing decoupage and home recycling as her primary interests. From there, she began to learn methods to help her make the art and what was needed to produce pieces of final product. Because her financial situation at the time was not good, Laila began to use what was available in her home, developing the method of work that would provide a tangible income. She started participating in a family association and slowly began to buy the necessary tools used for the art form, which was not widely known at the time in her community. Now, Laila has set up workshops specialized in the art of decoupage and recycling in schools, bazaars, and associations, overcoming many difficulties, the largest of which is marketing.
