21.01 - Our African patterns

Textiles and patterns are a big part of the African culture. Men and women often weave cloth and sell it for money. There are many different styles of cloth across the African continent due to the different tribes and groups. The colours and shapes on the clothes are symbolic to the tribe making it.
We used oil pastels to create our own African patterns. We learnt about hot and cold colours and decided which would be appropriate for our patterns.
