The much-anticipated annual Christmas Exhibition showcasing the handmade beadwork, embroidery, telephone wire, clay and wood decorations of the African Art Centre is now up and running.

This exhibition fulfills the Centre’s mission to facilitate innovative products through creative skills development initiatives which enable local crafters to generate sustainable income through their art.

This year the Centre presents exciting new work by young creatives currently being trained through the African Art Centre’s outreach Velobala Jewellery Design classes. The telephone wire decorations will be available alongside the beaded, embroidered and wood decorations produced by well-known African Art Centre crafters.

A novel feature at this year’s exhibition are uniquely African-designed beach towels, the result of a partnership between Mr Price Home and four African Art Centre artists.

The exhibition runs until December 24 at the African Art Centre, 94 Florida Road, Morningside. For more information, contact 031 303 4634.
