The Zwide Craft Project. This project is an urban skills development programme which aims to develop craft skills amongst unemployed people in informal and poor settlements in the Nelson Mandela Metropole. Traditional beading craft, fabric painting, fabric printing, sewing and quilting skills are taught. We focus on designs with an African motive.
