Kente cloth

Kente cloth pins were available to the attendees of the New Glasgow African Heritage Month kick-off held at New Glasgow Square on Feb. 2. Kente cloth is often worn for ceremonial occasions such as weddings, festivals, and other moments of importance and celebration. The Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library has supplies to make kente cloth-inspired crafts.

A kente weaving-inspired activity is available at libraries across the county for the rest of the month.

Kristel Fleuren-Hunter, the Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library’s children’s services librarian, proposed the idea to offer a kente-inspired weaving craft for children during African Heritage Month.
