Celebrate the art and culture of West Africa and the Yoruba people! Stephen Hamilton, a Boston-based artist, will be leading an Adire dye demonstration as a part of his workshop with local students who are creating a large scale traditional Textile installation based on West African Weaving and Dyeing traditions. After the demonstration, there will be a time to speak with the artists and enjoy traditional West African music and food.

This event will be outdoors and rescheduled in case of rain.
