THULUBONGE POTTERS (article first published : 1999-11-22)

Head into town along the Western Freeway and just over the traffic lights at Warwick Avenue, turn right into 127 Alice Street. This will take you into the Thekwini Business Development Centre which is soon to host the Kaleidoscope Market. Here you will find Thulubonge Potters in one of the rooms allocated to small businesses.

A group of women who shared the same church decided to set out on their own and raised capital to open their own pottery studio which was up and running in June this year. Bongekile Phungula, Phumzile Msomi, Thobi Hadebe and Thandi Khuboni now produce a wide range of bright ethnic kitchenware and ornaments at reasonable prices to suit every need, from household use to Christmas gifts. In fact, business is so good that they have a commission to complete for the United States and are now working towards getting a bigger kiln machine. The group exhibited at the SMME Fair organised by the Metro Council in October and appeared on the recent Commonwealth Exhibition.

Thulubonge Potters is open from Monday to Friday from 08h30 to 18h00 and on Saturdays from 08h30 to 14h00. Contact them through Thandi Khuboni on 083 460-5807.
