The seemingly simple cloth of white designs on a black background represents the serious artistic manner of telling stories of village life in Mali, Africa. Understand a bit of Malian culture while learning about bogolan fini, as well as how that dyeing process is modified outside Mali. Use your own mud to create personal stories on natural fiber cloth. Registrants will receive a list of materials to bring to class.
