ECHO CRAFT BAZAAR (article first published : 2003-11-12)

The countdown has begun to Pietermaritzburg’s largest and most successful craft event – the Echo Craft bazaar.

The Echo Craft Bazaar, which showcases some of the best work by crafters from around this province, is held annually at the Tatham Art Gallery. This year the Bazaar runs from November 21 to 30.

Now in its ninth year, The Bazaar boasts hundreds of beautiful and unique handmade items. From ceramic pots, wooden carvings, beadwork and crochet to grass baskets, printed table cloths and traditional attire, local and overseas tourists are guaranteed of finding first-class, affordable gifts.

Although the Bazaar is open to the whole of KZN, the Tatham Art Gallery is especially concerned that the needs of communities of the Pietermaritzburg-Msunduzi area are addressed. In this regard the Art Gallery’s Outreach department which administers the Bazaar, has devised a unique training programme to help crafters improve the craft they are making, teach them how to sell their work and improve their communication and numeracy skills.

The Tatham Art Gallery is in Commercial Road, directly opposite the City Hall. The Craft Bazaar will be open every day between 10h00 and 17h30. Entrance to the Gallery is free. More information from Julia Buss or Phumzile Sithole on 033 342 8070.
