Qhayiya Secondary School learners from the Extra mural craft class were treated to a tour of local craft workshops and galleries.

We visited Hornbill House view their cermaic studio and gallery. The learners were knocked out by the fine art drawings of Erma Dry – they couldnt believe they were not photographs. Next stop was to GF Upholstery where Shadrack has a studio making cement birds for a huge mobile that will be installed in a guest house in Cape Town, Shadrack demonstrated the mould pouring and the process.

At the Little Shoppe studio, the learners were intrigued with the Recycled craft and have made lists of skills they would like to learn.
