The environment

In view of the high levels of unemployment, the production of craft has become a significant source of income particularly within rural and low-income communities in KwaZulu Natal. For more than 50 years, The African Art Centre has committed itself to facilitating and implementing relevant, strategic programs and projects aimed at addressing the concern of unemployment.


Beadwork has a reputation for being the most prevalent craft practised in KwaZulu Natal. The African Art Centre prides itself in the range of unique and innovative beadwork. Our bead workshops have been the highlight of the African Art Centre’s achievements; empowering rural women with valuable skills and providing a sustainable source of income.

Beading Workshops are presented by the African Art Centre throughout the year. The workshops aim at developing new skills and techniques, product development and we encourage the production of works of originality and of the highest quality.
