Details

Wednesday, August 8, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Storytime Room

World Wednesdays are the perfect opportunity to learn about and celebrate world cultures! Each week we will learn by doing with a craft, game or activity that explores a different part of the world.

Sari: a garment consisting of a lengths of cotton or silk elaborately draped around the body, traditionally worn by women from South Asia. Saris have been present in Indian culture and imagery for thousands of years. Hindu goddesses of beauty, knowledge, and power are depicted draped in the colorful garments, and women throughout India wear saris for many occasions. Today we will be upcycling sari-like fabrics to reincarnate the Hindu tradition of saris and garland. The finished product will be a beautiful sari tassel garland!
