Submitted by Patrice L. Scott

A collaboration between the K-State College of Education art education program and many campus and community departments and organizations is bringing an internationally renowned textile artist to campus for a lecture and workshops that are free and open to the public.

Gasali Adeyemo, a Nigerian Adire cloth artist who uses indigo and other natural dyes to create this traditional form of textile art, will conduct three workshops and one lecture. Workshop attendees can tie dye if they choose. Space and seating are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
