Adire Cloth


After finishing their masks, second grade students studied another art form from Africa- textiles.  We looked at Kente, Adinkra, and Adire.  After learning about these three kinds of cloth we focused our attention on Adire- which is created with a resist dye method.  Using rubberbands as our resist we tied them around a wet wipe and dyed the cloth with markers.  Once the cloth was dry it was opened to reveal our own adire cloths!  The cloth was used as a background for their masks.
