This is a really good place to visit in Cape town. Enjoyed my visit here. You can see the artist making the beaded art and it is really fun to watch. Every piece is beautiful and everyone in the store is so nice.

The shop moved from Boo Khap to the woodstock area. Always some nice hand made crafts with beads. You can see people working i n a very friendly atmosphere. Nice animals, some pieces are really huge!

The most extensive and impressive display of African wire art in Cape Town. Take a stroll through the factory upstairs to see how these incredible art works are made. Definitely worth a visit.
