Beading for economic empowerment

03 June 2013

With furrowed brows showing steely concentration, UCT staffers put their dexterity to the test on 22 May at the second annual beading workshop, as part of UCT's Africa Month celebrations. Participants were taught how to make jewellery and crafts with beads and were also shown innovative ways to wrap headscarves. At the end of the day, everyone took home their colourful creation. The workshop was convened by Monkeybiz, a non-profit bead project that focuses on women's empowerment and health development in the most economically under-resourced areas of South Africa.
