Kente Workshop

Kente weaving is an ancient indigenous method of weaving intricate patterns into strips that can later be sewn together into larger tapestries. These cloths are used for ceremonial events and differ in color and design depending on the region, tribe, and chiefdom. The Kente program at Trinity Yard School began in 2010. It is one of our most popular artistic offering. Formerly the course was led by Promise Badu, son of a master Kente weaver in the Volta region of Ghana. The Kente weaving course has now been passed onto his student James Awotwe, a 2012 TYS graduate. This course has brought a deep aspect of Ghanaian culture to the School’s isolated region, allowing students to learn this ancient art that they would never have had access to otherwise.
