Baskets by master weavers and antique Zulu beads and crafts.

The African Art Centre is holding an exhibition of Zulu basketry by master weavers and also has an interesting selection of antique Zulu beads and craft items for sale.

“We are keen to try and keep such treasures in South Africa and are therefore inviting all national museums and galleries to a special preview of the exhibition to afford them an opportunity of pre-purchasing items,” says a gallery representative.

The official opening launched two books namely, Zulu Basketry by Jannie van Heerden and Zulu Beadwork, Talk with Beads by Hlengiwe Dube.

The African Art Centre is situated at 94 Florida Road, Morningside, Durban.
