Make a grand entrance! West African artists have a long tradition of producing beautiful doors and locks for granaries, shrines, homes, and royal palaces. Of equal interest are the beautiful doors and door frames that adorn homes and buildings along East Africa’s Indian Ocean coast, typical of Swahili architecture. Join us to discover the beauty and symbolism this rare form of art and architecture. Then, create your own personal version using cardboard and other materials for embellishment!
