The Woza Moya Crafters enjoyed extra activities this month. Oxfam sponsored Crafters from across KwaZulu-Natal to come together and share their stories and products. EMBO and HACT in Durban hosted this wonderful event and day outing for 20 crafters from our valley. Fancy Stitch launched some exquisite new motifs. Also in March Angela Shaw, Director of KwaZulu-Natal Society of Arts (KZNSA), began working with our Crafters, introducing them to product design and development, focusing on colours, shapes and finishing touches.
Angela has plans to overhaul our existing products, and to create new products for each group of crafters (embroiderers, knitters and sock animals). Watch this space for new and improved products and designs!
