African Adinkra Stamps


The 5th/6th grade class has been carving stamps from soft cut blocks.  They used acrylic paints to print their stamps on muslin cloth!  The students read about the African Adinkra symbol stamps and created their own symbol.

Beautiful stamps! My fifth and sixth grade artists did a similar project last year as part of our Artist-in-Residence program. Here's a link to the post on my blog.

I love your stamps. Since I work in a detention setting with girls not really allowed to have carving tools, I had to make my own adinkra symbol stamps for them to use to imprint clay beads. It was still fun. I'd like to find an easy way to try mock mud cloth using the stamps. Any ideas?

Thanks! Another option is to use the adhesive fun pieces and adhere cut shapes onto a wood block. Use acrylic paint with these. I'm not sure how they would work on cloth, but they work well on paper!
