Beading, making shoes, dying fabric.
The Clothing Expert Group has been busy. Two weeks ago, friends studied the meanings of different colors and planned and beaded bracelets. Last week they made shoes with discarded cardboard and fabric (and conquered many glue gun fears!) This week they prepare for sharing their work with the other groups next week. In the mean time, a quick share on a recent day.
After reading about and studying photos of traditional and contemporary clothing, friends tried on shukas, kangas, and beading. Later, with the help of Gaia’s mom, they used ochre to dye fabric to make their own clothing. More to come as they finish their products this week.
