Use veggies from the garden and objects found around the house to create your own unique stamps. Learn about and use Adinkra stamps made out of calabash gourds from Ghana West Africa. We will use your handmade stamps to decorate a pillow for your bed, make a “quilted” wall hanging, create a “HoUsE” poster, print a fabric book, and make a playful self portrait!

Masks may be required in the classroom depending on community spread. Masks requirements may be subject to change. If you are not willing to wear a mask please do not register for our youth classes.
