“A must-see hidden gem on the outskirts of Johannesburg”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

We were in for a very pleasant surprise when we stopped at the Ngwenya glass factory and the little crafts village where it is located. Having. Seen Ngwenya glass in a crafts shop outside Melbourne before we left for South Africa we were delighted to find the full range of glassware on display right here in Johannesburg.

The crafts village is wonderful to wonder around in, either grabbing something to eat or drink at the crafts beer pub or watching the kids play in the great little playground.

A perfect destination for a lazy weekend afternoon...

“Glass, beer, and crafts”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Always something happening here - whether you just pop into the glass factory, or have a meal and a beer at Gilroys, you'll have to pop into some of the little craft shops as well. Joseph the beading genius has lots of little (and larger) things to choose from, and will make things according to order.
