WHAT IS THE ARTLIFT WORKSHOP ALL ABOUT?
The ArtLIFT Project started in April 2019. The aim of the project is to teach the residents of Woodlane Village to make articles/crafts that LIFT then sells for them in order for them to receive an income that can assist with supporting their families. The classes take place every Monday from 9:00 to 11:00.
The ladies are taught to make gift tags, Christmas decorations from beads, and necklaces made with beads and crochet work. They also learn how to do macrame with the make pot plant hangers and key holders.
The ladies are also taught to loom every winter and they make woollen hats that they can sell in the village.
Items are sold on craft markets in Pietersburg, Rustenburg and Pretoria and items can also be ordered from LIFT. The ladies are very proud of the money that they earn.
In the past ladies were also taught how to make items from recycled material. They learnt how to make brooms from plastic bottles, notice boards with cork used to seal wine bottles, door “curtains” with plastic bottle lids, wind charms from beer bottle lids and crochet with plastic bags.
A Brazilian lady also taught them how to use Tetrapak boxes as insulation against heat as well as cold weather for their shacks.
