What's Included

A special workshop in conjunction with Telluride's Many Hands Fiber Festival In this weekend workshop, students will learn the traditional Yoruba technique of Adire Eleko with visiting artist Gasali Adeyemo. Adire Eleko is the process of creating patterns on fabric using cassava paste (yucca), a small broom and a chicken feather. After learning how to make the cassava paste (which acts as a resist), students will develop intricate designs using stencils and free-hand methods, and then dye their pieces with organic indigo. Participants will leave with the skills to continue the Yoruba Adire method on their own. Students have the option of signing up for either morning classes (9 a.m. -noon) or afternoon classes (1-4 p.m.) All students are invited to Gasali's evening presentation on Friday from 6-8 p.m. Students have a required materials list of supplies they must bring to class.
