A bespoke fabric range launch and exhibition for KZNSA
Ufafa Valley Fabrics – too beautiful for words.
Crafters are: Thandi Mzolo, Gugu Chiliza, Thembisile Mdladla, Jabulile Ngubane, Nompumelelo Dlamini, Nokwanda Ndlovu, Thobisile Mbanjwa, Thembeka Tenza, Nokuthula Ngcobo, Alfrina Mahlaba.
As part of the training, makers and the admin team visited the KZNSA gallery and shop in Durban, plus other craft retailers, to get a sense of how their product comes to market.
The exhibition, in the KZNSA’s mezzanine gallery, is the launch of the textile range and UFAFA VALLEY, the new brand name of Woza Moya, Ixopo’s crafting division. It will feature enormous dramatic fabric drapes fronted by beautiful portrait photographs of the embroiderers, knitters and crafters, taken by Angela Buckland.
The organisers wish to acknowledge the Rotary Global Grant and Dr Marion Spence and John Hinks who have made this project possible.
