Description


DESCRIPTION

We are carpenters specializing in carving wood and bones into toys, ornaments, animal sculptures, and much more. We would love to welcome you and share our craft techniques with you.

We work together with other types of artisans. Our center is part of an initiative of the Association for the Physically Disabled of Kenya (APDK). As such you will be working with some of our disabled artisans, who have been trained up to become master carpenters.

Upon arrival we will show you around, introducing you to all different types of arts we make. After that, it is time to get active and put your hands on making some wood carving piece yourself. It’s up to you what you wish to carve! In the end, you will be able to take home the wood carving that you have created.
