OH, jingle shells, jingle shells, jingle all the way. Oh what fun it is to play with shells all day long. Jingle shells, jingle shells, jingle all the way.

The Department of Tourism and Creative Industries, in conjunction with the Kouga Arts Council, is currently hosting a shell workshop for eight creative women in Jeffreys Bay. The workshop is presented by ar-tist and teacher Elaine Roos.

According to Kouga Municipality spokesperson, Laura-Leigh Randall, the workshop is in aid of the shell ladies who have been doing this craft for many years.

“We want to empower our needy crafters and assist them to become more economically active. The workshop is geared to adapt their product to the current market, expand their creativity, implement quality control and be abreast of costing.”

The shell workshop forms part of a three-leg project. Next on the project list is the craft of jewellery making, followed by home décor.

According to Randall, the craft workshops will be expanded to include all the areas of Kouga.
