Traditional crafts hold a special significance in Ugandan villages – whether it is a small basket containing groundnuts as a sign of friendship; a calabash placed on top of a house to ward off evil spirits; or a traditional healer´s woven purse, filled with natural remedies. Kikorongo Women Community invites you to learn some of their traditional craft skills during this workshop led by two experienced teachers.
Students are taught how to weave baskets and bowls using natural fibers – it´s not as easy as the teachers make it look! You will also learn how to make colorful paper beads from magazines, which you will be able to make into a unique necklace. And of course, if your own craft skills are not up to scratch, beautiful items made by members of the women´s group, such as baskets, bowls, purses and woven belts are available for purchase.
