Textiles, Cloth, Dialogue and Storying

Naa Densua Tordzro will be talking about African textiles and their meaning to the wearer and his/her surroundings, based on the type of material used and the patterns and symbols on that material.

Naa Densua Tordzro is a research student at the University of Glasgow, Ghanaian fashion designer, dressmaker and African Ga music composer and singer with an expertise in ancient West African Adinkra symbols that were printed on traditional fabrics. As a fashion and African textile artist, she has spent time researching the ways in which African textile and clothing is interpreted when worn by people other than Africans. Naa Densua has created numerous items of clothing for wear in both Ghana and Scotland and at other venues. She currently has a gown entitle ‘Obaasima’ meaning Virtuous Woman on display at Kelvingrove Museum and Arts Gallery.
