Wrap Culture Around You - Cloaks, Clothing and Jewellery
Making artworks and artefacts is a means of continuing culture and transmitting knowledge and stories. Learning to make traditional crafts and using traditional designs keeps knowledge strong, transmits that knowledge and reinforces identity. Making art can also be a healing process. Using designs and markings from your cultural group in your art, making a cloak and trying it on, making a basket the way your grandmother taught you, all these things can heal you and make you stronger.
