Panel showing photos of adire-making process at Nike Art Gallery. Adire is the traditional Yoruba hand painted cloth on which patterns are made by tying and stitching with raffia or cotton thread, or by using chicken feathers to paint cassava paste on the cloth which then acts as a resist dye, much like the wax method used on the batiks. The art of making Adire is taught formally at Nike Art Galleries in different parts of the country including Ogidi-Ijumu.
