UKUKHANYA – SHINE (article first published : 2005-12-4)

Enter a forest of sparkling, luminescent jewels and silvery shining shapes and textures. Glass beads crackle and intriguing sculptural hangings and figures embrace you as you wander through an amazing landscape of fantasy creations. Umcebo/The Treasure is waiting to be shared.

This joyful celebration of creativity and skill will include finely handcrafted jewellery and beadwork as well as spectacular couture gowns made from recycled materials and stunning mosaics. There will also be wirework and beaded sculpture as well as the trademark Umcebo tapestries.

The Umcebo Trust with the National Department of Arts and Culture, Department of Arts. Culture and Tourism( Ethekwini Cluster), DIT, St Raphael’s School and Sinethemba Children’s Centre, present the annual end of year exhibition entitled Ukukhanya/Shine.

In its ongoing drive to challenge notions of art and craft, The Umcebo Trust presents a collection of fine art pieces produced by its crafters in their inclusive workshops which are currently held every Saturday at the DIT City Campus. A diverse group of crafters with and without special needs gather with a dedicated team of volunteers each Saturday, to make fine art pieces. This work is run in conjunction with their Level 2 Craft learnership, in association with the MAPPP-SETA, and the Arts and Culture Chamber. The work is a testament to what can be achieved in an inclusive environment. Final year students at DIT have also made their skills available under the supervision of Jan Jordaan and John Roome.

The exhibition runs for two months at the Durban Art Gallery from December 7 until January 29.
