My Grade 6 class have been learning about the Ghanaian Adinkra symbols. Adinkra printing is a process of the Ashanti people of Ghana. It traces back to the 19thC. The designs were originally printed on deep red or black fabric and was worn by mourners. Each symbol has a meaning behind it. In fact a proverb is attached to every symbol.
The students created their own proverb and symbol beneficial for our school community. These photos show you how their gorgeous prints are going.
