The Cuna people, Native Americans who live in the San Blas de Cuna Islands, off the northern coast of Panama, make lovely fabric called mola, a traditional folk art.  They turn these into clothing, but others around the world find them so beautiful, that they frame them as works of art.  We will make some simple mola designs with felt, that will be hung from a willow branch as a wall decoration.
