Teacher Workshop: Textiles and Culture

First, look at African sculpture and Navajo textiles for surprising common themes across these different media and cultures. Then explore Yinka Shonibare's use of Dutch wax fabrics and his work on colonial themes in our special exhibition, Yinka Shonibare: Magic Ladders. In the afternoon, learn techniques to use textile art in your classroom. Lunch provided.
