Bogolan Workshop

Each year, the Friends Academy Middle School comes together as a whole community for an Arts Celebration. Goldner taught a four day Bogolan Workshop. The first day included an introduction to bogolan, history, uses, symbols. Students experimented with clay slip from Mali on a small cotton cloth. The second day, students worked on a larger cloth. On the third day, students added natural colors to their bogolan paintings. And on the last day, an exhibition presented their work.
