Friends – this past weekend Kwasi did a Kente weaving workshop at Roots Charter School, in Washington, D.C. The workshop was quite a success and had a very positive atmosphere! There were people of all ages – from elementary school children and young teenagers to community elders. Everyone had a great time learning how to weave their own Kente designs on Kwasi’s specially designed small Kente looms. Roots Charter School intends to organize another community workshop in the near future, although they haven’t specified a new date yet. Watch this space for more information!
