Weaver by Margaret Musgrove is a wondrous tale of a master weaver who teaches
two Ashanti weavers from Ghana, Africa how to make colorful patterns in the cloth that
they weave. The cloths are called kente cloth and are woven in a variety of
colors. The name kente comes from the word "kenten" which
means basket. It is named that because the weave looks a lot like the
weave on a basket. There are many different patterns and each has its
own name. After we read the story we decided to try to draw some of
our own kente cloth using the computer. We hope you like it!
