Women of the Coast workshop planned
Two fishing communities (Mamre and Buffeljagsbaai) are planning the Women of the Coast Spring Workshop for later this month.
Scheduled for 18 October, the workshop will look at skills development and cultural exchange.
The workshop is there for women from different fishing communities to network, share knowledge, inspiration and skills related to traditional crafts.
Homemade crafts such as traditional jams, pickled fish, frames, mirrors, ornaments and key chains made from sea shells will be on display and demonstrations of how to make some of these will be done.
The inititiative is a revival of the Coastal Links South Africa women’s programme which aims to assist women to be able to respond to the challenges they face personally, locally and internationally.
