Grades 5-12.

Molas are an exquisite handmade design that forms part of a traditional outfit of the Guna, an indigenous people from Panama and Columbia. Molas are traditionally made in a reverse appliqué process that involves several layers of fabric, cutting, and hand stitching. Needle felting is a process of working with wool and a barbed felting needle to create felted designs. When wool fibers are locked together, felt is created. Designs can be felted on by adding wool to the top and pushing it with a felting needle to lock it in place.

  • Be introduced to Molas and their significance to the Guna people.
