New Lines of Enquiry, 2008
So how does this fit into my blog on bark cloth.....
Bobby has taken her interest in textiles with her as she travels to and works in Uganda. She and her husband work with the local community to run a small organization in the town of Kisaabwa, Hands up for Uganda, focusing on the traditional crafts of basketry and woven mats. As a textile artist herself, Bobby is passionate about engaging with the women in Kisaabwa and learning about their materials and crafts.
Amie Adelman and I will both be a part of this project - so more updates will follow!
As a wonderful side note - on the organization's farm in Kisaabwa ,100 Mutuba trees have been planted!
