Regular Development Projects presented by the African Art Centre not only focus on skills transfer and product development but also on the preservation of traditional craft skills. Over the past 50 years, the Centre has represented the interest of craftspeople and artists by supporting and promoting their work at the shop and also via retail markets and art galleries in the rest of the country and abroad. Every purchase made from the African Art Centre provides income and employment for more than 200 crafters represented by the Centre.
The African Art Centre offers a personal wedding gift registry, specially handcrafted corporate gifts and designs as per request. We work with Interior Designers and Decorators by assisting artists and crafters in manufacturing specifically designed original, handmade products for your home.
