Create your own custom apron out of African textiles with local artist Velma Crawford. Learn about the incredible diversity and richness of African textiles and about the symbolic meaning behind adinkra symbols from Ghana. Then, select your favorite adinkra symbol to create a pattern for your one-of-a-kind design. You can even add a favorite keepsake to make your apron extra special!

This workshop is presented as part of the museum’s series of Workshop Wednesdays. Every first Wednesday of the month, stop by the museum for drop-in classes from trained teachers. Stay for as little or as long as you like to complete your masterpiece. All skill levels and ages welcome; participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
