Two artists from Taung, Kabelo Chelechele (29) and Lebogang Koji (40) hit Kimberley by storm with their unique creativity of hand-made artificial house structures.

The decorated structures can be utilised for decoration, as children’s toys at home and at Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres.

Out of desperation to market their product to earn a living, they were met by Express Northern Cape on their way home from Bloemfontein in October.

They travel between the three towns to market their work, made out of recycled material which includes masonite board, plastic, glass, aluminium and boxes.

The community and curious potential clients were taken by their amazing work and they stopped the artists to take their contact details for future references.

Chelechele said he started the business six years ago in a bid to earn a living and support his family.

He has never worked before, thus he decided to use his skill in arts.

His biggest dream is to register his business and empower more people in his community that finds themselves in the same situation.

According to him, the toy house is usually part of a package of a house plan where the client or the contractor is able to build their dream house exactly as they want it.

For more information on the business, call Chelechele on 073-312-2804.
