Cassava is a plant that grows in tropical regions and is eaten as a staple part of many people’s diets. The Yoruba people in Nigeria use Cassava paste in traditional ‘resist’ dyeing techniques, to create patterns on natural fabrics. Textile artists Yemi Awosile and Emamoke Ukeleghe will take children on a creative journey to see what artwork can be produced in an afternoon of fabric dyeing at the Garden.

Our holiday workshops are suitable for children aged 5 – 11, although younger children are welcome, if they are with an older sibling and a parent or carer works alongside them. We receive no funding for our children’s holiday activities, so please do make a donation to help cover our costs if you can.
