The Eastern Great Lakes Fiber Conference (EGLFC) October 7-10, 2011 in Chatauqua NY will include a two day class on Bogolanfini (Mudcloth) Modified, led by Judy Dominic.
The strikingly simple white design on black background cloth represents the serious artistic manner of telling the stories of village life in Mali, Africa. Learn about the traditional practice of bogolanfini, dyeing cotton cloth with mud, as well as how that process is modified two different ways in the Dominic version. During the workshop you will have the opportunity to create your own story designs using local muds on cotton and other natural fiber cloth. Connect with the earth - literally! - and gain an appreciation of the Mali culture. All level dyers are welcome.
