Brighton Festival
Open House 2017
 

 



Welcome to AfricArt Open House May 2017

'Pedigree Art at Mongrel Prices' that's what you get at AfricArt. Contemporary stone sculptures from Southern Africa rub shoulders with art, metalwork and textiles from West Africa.

Exhibited alongside is Bob Webzell's stunning photography inspired by the Luminous Continent. Exotic yet affordable jewellery by Palomita adds an extra sparkle.

Sculpting Workshops are run in the garden by two Zimbabwean artists using serpentine and opal stone from Zimbabwe – a great opportunity to learn new skills and unlock your creative potential. Come and observe or join in. Booking essential.

Raw Stone is for sale during the Festival and throughout the year by appointment. Currently there is a choice of 15 tons of different types of stone, some hard but many of them soft and easy to carve, even for beginners.
