These eight young adults participate in a Sewing Collective run by a local expert and business owner, where they learn the ins and outs of making traditional African mud cloth bags and batik fabrics.
MUD CLOTH BAGS
The students work carefully under the guidance of Eunice, a local sewing expert and business owner, to bring traditional African mud cloth and leather remnants to life.
Emmanuel, a TAL security guard turned artist, teaches students the ancient wax resisting process known as Batik. Each fabric is dyed and stamped completely by hand, leaving behind a colorful repetitive pattern.
