February South – Textiles From West Africa -Molly Martin

Molly Martin has been collecting African textiles for almost 50 years.  Come hear her talk about the various narrow band weaving traditions of West Africa. There will be many examples from Ghana, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Togo, Mali and Liberia. Narrow band (sometimes called strip) weaving is fundamental to traditional W. African cloth.

Join us… and bring something to share in the show and tell portion of the meeting. We’ll also be distributing creativity fun kits as a fiber challenge.
