“PERFECT FOR GIFTS”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The African Art Centre has a great range of well-priced gifts. I always buy their latest beaded jewellery offerings. Extremely well-priced at R36 for a pair of bright earrings! the staff are always very friendly and they have a wealth of knowledge about South African art and crafts. There is an amazing selection of antique beadwork.

“great place for high quality African craft gifts.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I have found this a wonderful place to buy high quality African Craft gift items with a soul. And to know that i am supporting 100% local artists is a great feel good factor,. The burnt wood carvings and babies mobiles are my favourite gift items. Its become a "regular" of mine.

“So much you are confused”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Various artefacts, nature themed clothes and materials, and some very spiritual things too. I like the conscious display of South African life in this place.

“Excellent job, African Art Centre”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

I've bought numerous high quality paintings, colourful baskets and beautiful fired clay pots from the African Art Centre. Affordable prices! This is a non profitable organisation that empowers rural communities by earning an income and creating traditional African arts and crafts. A worthy cause.
