MAWA's Crafternoon - Jagulay: Tie-dye from Sierra Leone
December 10, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Marie will show us how to do her traditional style of tie-dye, known as Jagulay”, which is a skill she brought from her homeland, the West-African country of Sierra Leone.
She uses thread and plastic to tie the fabric and dye it into colorful patterns.
Marie will prepare and bring Sierra Leonean snacks.
There will be music and a cultural display to enjoy during the workshop.
Marie arrived in Newfoundland 8 years ago. She has been living in Winnipeg for 6 years. Marie likes to be involved with the Sierra Leonean community and maintains her handicraft skills at the Central Park Women’s Resource Centre, where she is part of a sewing project producing workers’ overalls for a local company.
