August 2004

The "Memories of Africa" textile workshop was so successful that we are going to make it an annual event.

We began with an opening lecture by Mr. Abban, head of the textile department at the Education University in Winneba and ended with lectures and demonstrations by two American quilters who discussed how to finish quilts and the dynamics of African American quilting.

In between we had an Asafo company dance their flags, an adinkra artist teach this ancient technique and various workshops on techniques like tie and dye and batik.
