The Lwandle Migrant Labour Museum is gearing up to run beadwork training, to be facilitated by St Mary’s Home of Hope.

The one-day event will take place on 10 July at the museum, and there is room for 20 to 30 people.

The free training is expected to leave long lasting benefits to the community of Lwandle and surrounding areas.

Museum manager Masa Soko told City Vision the museum has had a number of people visiting and inquiring about arts and crafts.

“Some people come along and ask if we don’t offer any training in art, while others want to sell their own art,” she said. “So we thought this would be a good starting point, teach those who are interested what to do with beads.”

Soko urged anyone interested to register, as no walk-ins will be allowed on the day of the training.

“We have posters all around the township, and we have also shared information on our social media platforms for those interested,” she said.

Soko believes this will be a great learning curve, especially for the unemployed, as they will be equipped with a skill that they can use for the rest of their lives.

She said: “There’s a lot that can be done with beads, and we know for example people during Heritage Day like wearing beads. So people need to come and learn the basic skills of beadwork which may help them going forward.”

Soko said it would be great if they can have both the youth and older generation to participate on the day.

All those interested can RSVP before 8 July at Phumicollections@lwandlemuseum.co.za or visit the museum.
