Make your own mudcloth flower! Mudcloth is a beautiful fabric made in Mali, West Africa, with 100% cotton strip cloth, woven on a traditional loom, and dyed with natural mud to make exquisite fabric. Mudcloth is celebrated for its rich traditional methods, right at home in contemporary design. We will make a simple fabric flower with this cloth, topped with a sweet little stamen made out of 100% wool, hand felted into a ball, made in Bolivia. These flowers make lovely hostess gifts, dress up your holiday table, or just bring joy into your home decor.
World Peaces' founder, Dr. Connie De Jong, will lead you through the steps to make this flower. We have prepped everything for you so that it should take 15-30 minutes, depending on how much time you'd like to take with the process. At World Peaces, we believe that creativity connects us all, and that by working ethically with artists and artisans from Africa to the Americas, we help make the world a little brighter, a little more connected, a little more peaceful. Thank you for being a part of this vision. We are all World Peaces, thanks to you.
Additional kits available online if you'd like to make a whole bouquet!

Tea: A term often used to refer to some juicy information
First Tuesday Tea is a monthly forum for seniors to explore dance, music, books, news from the community, and so much more. Sessions can include presentations by guest artists, lecturers and community leaders.
Each month, participants look forward to the camaraderie that comes from meeting new friends in a safe, relaxed atmosphere, and the opportunity to discover abilities and creative talents.
Feel free to arrive early. The doors to the event will open at 11:30 AM. In the meantime, you can take a stroll into the gallery, peruse our corridor gallery or hang out in waiting area in the lobby.
You can park in our lot behind the King Arts Complex, as well as the Bethany Baptist Church parking lot on N. Garfield Avenue. We have an additional parking lot on the Mount Vernon side, across from our building.
Project support for First Tuesday Tea comes from the Isabelle Ridgway Foundation.
