Great Experience for the whole family
Mar 2019 • Family
My family and I visited Accra earlier this year. We did the Batik Making workshop with Ms. Grace's assistants. They were patient and helped us leave with some beautiful pieces of fabric and an amazing experience. We also purchased quite a bit of clothing from her shop, Graciela. She made some custom pieces for my children in 2 days. I get compliments every week when I wear one my dresses. My only regret is not scheduling this workshop first so I could get more custom clothing. Highly recommend the Batik making workshop and shopping at the store.
