Hout Bay’s township of Imizamo Yethu houses one of the brightest African craft projects around: Mandela Park Mosaics, founded in 1999 and today a supplier of all manner of glittering, hand-made artefacts, from African-themed vases to Matisse-inspired wall installations.
Now you can see what the china, tile and mirror “chop shop” is up to online: the studio’s recently-launched website proudly displays its many beautiful products – and even features “DIY” mosaic tips and components!
You can also get involved: Mandela Park Mosaics is seeking help expanding; and donations in this regard are welcome.
