week 11 pt 2

Read all the exciting things our scholars have been up to!

Still in Kumasi, on saturday me and my friend went to go and visit the Adinkra Village. It was about 3-5 hours from where we were staying in Kumasi. We bought some traditional Adinrka clothes, and also go to stamp it with the traditional inl. The ink is made from a special tree in which the bark is soaked in hot water for about an hour. Then it is let to sit overnight and thicken in consistency and color. Then it is ready to use. It is a natural dye that has been used for thousands of years.
