Adinkra Cloth

Third graders learned about symbolism and Ghanan Adinkra Cloth. They chose an Adinkra symbol and then carved it in easy cut linoleum to make a 3" square stamp. 

They used 12" square paper and printmaking ink to print their symbol 16 times on the paper, similar to how authentic Adinkra is created on cloth. 

See our gallery here (Houlton to come!)
