PalaeoShwe was created in collaboration with Dr Wendy Taylor for her Puppet Planet educational programme. The fabric had to champion South African palaeoscience, and contain educational takeaways for learners. The fabric draws on traditional Ankara and ShweShwe fabric designs.
It is my great pleasure to re-introduce PalNews this April. Our community, and indeed the world, has seen many changes since the release of the last issue in September of 2019. In the aftermath of the pandemic, communities are still recovering from the long-term effects of isolation and it is vitally important that we re-establish our pathways of communication.
