Yesterday we went to Mme Mateboho's workshop - Rose Leather Works - other craft workers were invited to attend and we looked at and discussed products produced in her workshop. We then asked them all to think about how they could develop new leather products that could include other techniques materials such as weave, Seshoeshoe fabric, and horn. This kind of design discussion is a new concept to them but they took part with real enthusiasm and came up with some good ideas - all very encouraging.
The photos show us all outside in the sun, the two groups in deep discussion and Mme Mateboho's employee making sheepskin slippers
