Kitengela Hot Glass

Date : 2010-02-15 02:12:35

DescriptionKitengela Glass is located opposite the Nairobi National Park, at the end of a rough road. Despite this, the constant stream of visitors from all over the world never stops. The magical ambience of the place is peppered with sculptures, animals and secret mosaic pathways which lead to niches of busy artisans all transforming recycled glass and scraps of other materials into beautiful artworks, jewellery and home ware. They try to help their locale as much as possible – over fifty people have been trained and work in the various disciplines, a local orphanage is being supported, scholarships awarded, school fees loaned, roads repaired and security improved, a thousand trees planted, raw materials and fuel recycled, and all the packaging is second hand.
