VITA CRAFT AWARDS (article first published : 2000-06-18)

The FNB Vita Craft Now Millennium Awards Exhibition opens at the African Window Gallery in Pretoria on July 15 at 11h00. This is the fourth FNB Vita national craft exhibition held in collaboration with the National Crafts Council. South Africa's most prestigious awards exhibition, it focuses on work by craftspeople nationwide and aims to encourage the creation of works of fine craftsmanship and design across all major craft disciplines such as wood, metal, fibre, glass, recycled materials and more. All the works are original, on show for the first time and available for sale.

Dr Ben Ngubane, Minister of the Department of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology will present prizes totalling R25 000 at the opening. Over 250 exhibits of a high standard have been selected by the jury to go on the main exhibition alongside works from recent workshops held under the auspices of the National Crafts Council, sponsored by Telkom and the Handwerkskammer des Saarlanden. These special displays include innovative, contemporary jewellery and telephone wire designs.

A free marketing skills workshop will be given by John Arnesohn (CMSA) from the Graduate School of Marketing Management at the Gallery on July 15 at 13h45. The objectives are to provide delegates with a broad knowledge of marketing and an understanding of the principles of marketing as well as to give craftspeople a practical approach to marketing their work. To register, please call Wendy on (011) 728-3070.
