This is what the project is about - and I quote from the website:
Promoting the ancient art of making bark cloth, a traditional material to Uganda and other countries.
Growing more Mutaba (bark cloth) trees to facilitate the project and create employment.
Creating awareness about the Kisaabwa Project and 'Hands up for Uganda'.about the Kisaabwa Project and 'Hands up for Uganda'.
Linking with artists, makers, enthusiastics, supporters in decorating a piece of bark cloth.
Creating awareness that shoe making is still healthy and alive as a craft at Star Child Shoes.
Transforming the decorated bark cloth into art shoes.
Developing and promoting the craft skills in Kisaabwa.
Bringing all this together to share with a wide viewing public in Birmingham and London in 2014.
This is the piece I have made. I made three simple stencils and printed them with acrylic paint at random. I then stitched around the shapes.
Below is a picture from the facebook page of some of the shoes made so far. Take a look at the https://www.facebook.com/barkcloth2artcloth/photos_albums
