Magwa Curio Shop is situated on the rolling hills of the Tea Plantation just outside Lusikisiki Town, near the unspoilt natural beauty of Magwa Falls and Frazer’s Falls. It is along the lovely landscape that rolls down to Mbotyi Beach, which is one of the major tourist attractions in this region of the Wild Coast.
Magwa Visual Arts Studio and Curio Shop is a project initiated by Magwa Tea Estate to give the rural community an opportunity to express themselves through art-works. It is at the same time an economic venture involving both the young and old in the community in earning some income through the sale of their products.
Some of the art-works on sale include:
- Handmade pottery;
- Textiles fabric painted such as table cloths and cushions; and
- Drawings of various subject matter by mix medium oil paint.
