I have been three times, taking friends new to Mali and each time I understand things better. The demonstration and workshop is really good and hands on participation is encouraged. As well as being introduced to the vegetable dyes used and the plants that they come from, you will be told the meaning of some the symbols used in Bogalon, and get to design your own fragment using the symbols. If nothing else, you will appreciate just how skilled these guys are. After visiting you will see the Bogalon cloth in a new light - understand it's a language, not just squiggles on a cloth. Well worth it. It's free and there is no pressure to buy, but you will probably want to.
