The fabrics used in African clothing are known for their bright colors and designs. The fabric is often used to make clothing worn in religious ceremonies. Among the best-known fabrics is Adinkra cloth from Nigeria and Kente cloth from Ghana. The children saw many images of both Adinkra cloth and Kente cloth on the Internet. Adinkra cloth is made by first applying a cassava paste design to a fabric before dying the cloth. The children drew designs on paper with white crayons and then used a blue watercolor wash to create the batik effect of Adinkra cloth. The Spider Weaver, by Margaret Musgrove, is a tale of a master weaver who teaches two Ashanti weavers from Ghana how to make colorful patterns in the cloth that they weave. The cloths are called Kente cloth and are woven in a variety of colors. The name Kente comes from the word "kenten", which means basket. After hearing the story, the children designed their own geometric Kente designs on brown paper bags to cover the African hut we have in the classroom.
