Dalton, Jane
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v108 n6 p28-29 Feb 2009
The Senufo people create paintings on hand-woven fabric using natural fibers, natural dyes made from leaves, and mud dug from the roots of trees. The fabric of the Senufo is woven in strips approximately six-to-eight inches wide, and sewn together to make a larger fabric for painting. The stylized drawings painted on the cloth are of masked figures and animals. This article describes how to create hand-painted fabrics. (Contains 2 online resources.)
