Make your own mudcloth flower! Mudcloth is a beautiful fabric made in Mali, West Africa, with 100% cotton strip cloth, woven on a traditional loom, and dyed with natural mud to make exquisite fabric. Mudcloth is celebrated for its rich traditional methods, right at home in contemporary design. We will make a simple fabric flower with this cloth, topped with a sweet little stamen made out of 100% wool, hand felted into a ball, made in Bolivia. These flowers make lovely hostess gifts, dress up your holiday table, or just bring joy into your home decor.
Tools needed: fabric glue and scissors
World Peaces' founder, Dr. Connie De Jong, will lead you through the steps to make this flower. The whole process should take 15-45 minutes, depending on your pacing. Use the presentation here to learn the steps, including a video of a past workshop in case you need that.
At World Peaces, we believe that creativity connects us all, and that by working ethically with artists and artisans from Africa to the Americas, we help make the world a little brighter, a little more connected, a little more peaceful. Thank you for being a part of this vision. We are all World Peaces, thanks to you.
