West African Clothing – Symbolism & Style: Kente (kenten means “basket”) is one of several hand-woven cloths that originated in West Africa. Kente is made in the Ashanti Kingdom in Ghana and by the Akans in Cote d’Ivoire. The colors and symbols are used in the making of traditional attire to communicate meaning to others across those communities without the use of words – similar to how our own choices about how we dress tells others something about who we are based on symbolism that has been ingrained in US culture for many years. Participants will use paper weaving and printmaking methods to design artwork inspired by Kente cloth that includes consciously chosen symbols that reflect who they are.
