That’s right, over the next few days and the next month, we’re taking our show out of the city and on the road!

Nairobi, Kenya

This Saturday and Sunday (25th & 26th June) we’ll be at the inaugural Bizarre Bazaar Summer Craft Fair at Nairobi’s beautiful Karura Forest. We’ll be joining several vendors offering the best in fashion, jewellry and furniture from all over East Africa. More information is available here and here’s a Karura Forest Map.

San Juan Islands, Washington State, USA

The Waterworks Gallery presents, Tales from Africa: Work inspired by African Animals.Taking place from the 25th of June until the 23rd of July, the exhibition will feature our contemporary African jewelry, along with beaded and bronze sculpture from Barbara Duzan, oil paintings from Jaime Ellsworth and work by Kenyan artists Timothy Peter Brooke, John Kamicha, Peter Ngugi and Elijah Ooko.

So whether in East Africa on in North West America (or both), we hope to see you there.

      Thanks for your comment Martina – we’re happy our work inspires you. Regarding a degree, it’s not a bad idea. A good degree will give you a foundation and skills that will come in useful as you progress in your career. That said, depending on what art and design discipline you want to pursue, and depending on who you want to work for/whether you want to work for someone or for yourself, a degree is not essential. There are other ways to gain the knowledge and build the skills you’ll need. You could try some short courses, apprenticeships and internships, self-learning through books and internet resources etc. If you have the passion – you’ll find the tools you need.
