Bògòlanfini, or mud cloth, originated in Mali and is one of Africa’s most unusual and unique textile arts. In this workshop led by textile artist Arlette Ngung, you’ll travel back in time to learn traditional textile painting techniques that use natural plant dyes and fermented mud. Then combine old and new approaches to create stunning, personalized pieces.
Presented in partnership with the Toronto Ward Museum.
