Create your own Kuba Cloth Art Inspired by Kuba People of Congo

July 25 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Kuba Cloth is a traditional woven and embroidered cloth from the Kuba peoples of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Traditionally men weave the fabric using raffia fibers derived from local palm plants and women apply pieces of the raffia cloth embroidered in magnificent geometric patchwork designs!

Join us for an afternoon making design inspired by this tradition.
