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.



Arlette Ngung is an art instructor and facilitator who creates art for education and social change through her textile arts and vegan workshops. She has credentials from the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York City, and Formamod, Paris. She is devoted to the preservation and reinterpretation of traditional African textile art and natural dye techniques.


The Toronto Ward Museum is a community-engaged museum that facilitates the preservation and sharing of personal stories of migrants in Toronto’s history through collaborative processes, programming, forums, and partnerships with the goal of collective empowerment.
