Khayelitsha Craftmarket


Founded at St. Michaels Church in 1997 the Khayelitsha Craftmarket became a important part of the community. Here we can watch how bead works, paintings, sculptures and wire art are handmade.

Besides manufacturing and selling arts and crafts the crafters are showing their skills to other interested members of the community, so that they can learn and maybe also make a living out of it.

Very often the returns from selling are the only income of the families. If our guests are looking for souvenirs or gifts, we always advise them to have a look in the townships first to directly support the families of the artists and crafters.
