Bark Cloth embellished and in the post

The next step for working on the barkcloth for the Hands Up for Uganda Barkcloth to Artcloth exhibition. You can read more about Hands Up for Uganda a project overseen by Bobby Britnell. here.

This was the second set - I found I could get two sets from the barkcloth I was sent. The flat disks at the bottom are Coconut Shell Beads. The green coloured flat bead which comes next are also beads that were from South America.

I added a little sample on the end of the 3 different embellishment patterns. This is for the book to commemorate the project.

Here is a better photo of the parts for the shoes.

The shoes will be exhibited at two of the ICHF shows: 20th to 23rd at NEC Birmingham and 3rd to 5th April at Excel London where you will be able to see them along with other work done by women of Uganda.
