Product Overview

From spectacular clothing and masks to pottery and music of Ghana and West Africa, this guide inspires children to try these easy-to-make crafts for themselves. A great way to connect children to their African roots or expose them to new cultures around the world, this fully illustrated guide features step-by-step instructions and contemporary color photos that teach kids how to make their own creations. Projects include how to design and wear Adinkra block-printed clothing, coil and decorate unique pottery, create masks for special occasions, craft and play musical instruments, and weave decorative Kente cloth. It includes a brief history of Ghana and West Africa and the traditions and history behind each craft, how they are made and used today, and their importance in West African society. A resource section listing books, Web sites, and museums for further exploration rounds out this fascinating reference.
