Expo for a noble cause!

29
Mar '08
Northumbria University gallery in UK, will be hosting a special exhibition by 30 women, from April 24 to 30, suffering from AIDS. The expo aims to provide financial support to these rural women.

The participants from Uganda have made extensive use of raffia, cotton yarn, colourful threads and beads to bring out the agony and frustration which the artisans are going through from the barkcloth.

Barkcloth, is a soft and slightly thick textured fabric having a rough surface like that of tree bark. The material is made by beating sodden strips of the fibrous inner bark of Broussonetia papyrifera, Artocarpus altilis, and Ficus trees.

Makerere University, Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Arts in collaboration with the Design School of the University of Northumbria and the department of Graphic Design of Durban University in South Africa had taken up this project to train the group, to enhance their crafting skills.
