Hello, I am Prisca from Ghana, and I am thrilled to be your GLOMADO Instructor! I enjoy meeting new people, and I love to find ways to help them have amazing experiences. I love crafting and being creative, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge of crafting with people who are ready to learn and discover new things. In my Workshops you will learn what bead making is all about, its importance in our culture, and what it symbolizes for us. I am very excited to impart this knowledge to my GLOMADO Learners!
Beads are among the most intriguing and important symbols in Ghana's cultural past and present. The materials used in making beads or beadwork are of the largest variety, from bone to glass. The colors and sizes, the significance of the materials chosen, and the placements of beads (either on the body, clothing or accessories, among other uses) denotes perspective, experience, feelings, beliefs and power.
I started crafting at the age of fourteen, when I realized that I loved working with my hands and that I had a talent for craft-making. I also love to sing, as it keeps me calm and makes me happy. I love people and I love to smile, as it helps others know you can get through the day if you just smile.
I love living in Ghana, because we Ghanaians are proud of our culture and love welcoming people from outside to integrate and mix in with our local customs and way of living. Ghana is famous for its nice people, and it is one of the most peaceful countries in Africa. Ghanaians are extremely friendly, helpful and polite people. There are a lot of places to visit, such as beautiful beaches, waterfalls, historic castles and wildlife parks. Greet any Ghanaian with a smile, and ask anything about their culture, country or food, and they will love to answer!
