We started the workshop with an Ice Breaker called “Miss Unique”. The group was split into 3 groups of 5 and each took turns to draw the head, shoulders, stomach, knees and feet of a person on paper concertina so each member of the group couldn’t see what the previous person had drawn. The “Miss Unique’s” were revealed to the rest of the group to much amusement.
Recently the women made Saa paper which is a traditional hand crafted paper made from the bark of Saa trees and decorated with flowers, leaves and brightly coloured paint. I designed a simple template for the women to draw around to make small bag’s from the paper.
The women then decorated the bags with beads, sequins and brightly coloured ribbons. There were some beautiful bags made and lots of creativity and fun in the process of making them.
