African Arts Centre Xmas Exhibition

There is much on offer this year, look out for handmade beadwork, embroidery, telephone wire, clay and wood decorations this year.

Look out for innovative products thanks to a creative skills development programme which aims to help local crafters generate a sustainable income through their art.

Wonder Msane, Phumlani Mbhele and Phumlani Madela have produced a range of ornaments in the formation of stars, hearts and angels executed in specified colour combinations.

‘We are thrilled to see young people absorb new skills so creatively!’ says assistant director Nozipho Zulu.

Look out for many arts and crafts from the likes of Happiness Dladla, Dumsile Mathe and many more.

A novel feature this year are uniquely African-designed beach towels so you can hit the beach in style. This is a result of a partnership between Mr Price Home and 4 African Art Centre artists, Sibusiso Duma, Nonotobeko Jilajila, Mbali Mabuza and Timothy Mlambo.

This new range will be available in Mr Price Home from 12 November.

A portion of the sales from each towel will go back to the African Art Centre to help with the development of emerging artists.
