In connection with the exhibition The Power of Gold: Asante Royal Regalia from Ghana opening on April 15, 2018, the DMA is offering a weaving workshop with internationally recognized weaver, Kwasi Asare. Working with his own special easy-to-use hand looms, workshop attendees will create their own wonderful pieces of the honored and venerable Kente cloth. To begin the workshop, attendees will go through the exhibition with DMA Senior Curator of the Arts of Africa, the Pacific, and the Americas, Roslyn Walker. Then during the studio portion, attendees will be able to create their own weaving to take home with instruction from Asare on the custom 16 in. by 8 in. looms.
