In honor of Thanksgiving, explore and learn the history of printmaking with Adinkra symbols, which are traditionally used on fabrics during celebrations like Homowo.
This workshop lead by artist Ashley Veluah J (The Colring Boxx) will take a deeper look into Homowo, an annual Festival celebrated by the Ga people of Ghana. Then you will explore the history of printing making, which introduces class to Adinkra, symbols traditionally used on fabrics during celebrations, specifically, Homowo. Lastly, the class will have an opportunity to create and apply basic printmaking methods on selected fabrics.

Supplies will be included.
