Katima Craft Centre

 

Katima Craft Centre offers a truly unique selection of Caprivian artefacts. We carry handcrafted wooden sculptured items as well as a wide selection of pottery and woven baskets and other items. These artefacts allow you to truly celebrate the cultural heritage and diversity of the Caprivians. These handmade pieces of Caprivian artists are crafted by the leading African artists.

The major centre in Caprivi, the gateway to Victoria Falls Zimbabwe and the Chobe National Park in Botswana, is Katima Mulilo. The proximity of the region to Angola, Botswana ans Zambia with their active craft industries, gives impetus to Caprivian artists and craftspeople. Caprivi pots and baskets are noted for their distinctive beauty and symmetry.

The art of the potter in Caprivi has evolved over time. Beautiful pots with spherical bodies and slender necks are created, often with intriguing patterns and interesting firing techniques, making them much sought after by collectors.

Our approach

Pots of Hope works with the poor, the stigmatized and abused women and girls. Engaging them in a life changing and emotional healing dialogue that enables them to rediscover their potential, and then provide them potting skills for long them empowerment.

Our Aim

  • Improve the livelihoods of rural and urban communities in Kunene Region through pottery making.
  • Reduce rural poverty through pottery making.
  • To stop gender based violence and reduce HIV and AIDS related stigma in the Kunene Region and thereby increase the uptake of HIV and AIDS and TB related services and prevention.

Community dialogues creates an enabling environment for both men, women and custodians of culture,
firstly women and men alone then in a join group challenged the harmful cultural that makes men/women vulnerable to HIV and come up with solutions.

“As young man I believed that beating my girlfriend was the only way to resolve problems. But now I
see and understand things differently. Most importantly men are never part of empowerment programs.
I am happy and honored to be part of the powerful dialogues”. Kamanjab resident.

Youth

Youth of Kamanjab explore how different groups of young people are stigmatized for different behaviors and look at how judgment about young people link to HIV-related stigma. Below they are engaged in a group work exploring between language and stigma.

“Thank you very much for all you have been and did for me. You are my strength of pillar, my friend, sister, mother, everything.” A Pots of Hope teen.

Volunteer

Volunteers are encouraged to share their skills, knowledge with the children, youth women, and men of Pots of Hope.

“Moulding pots has a therapeutic effect…”making pots gives me inner peace together as a group women, we can achieve great things and improve our lives and that of our community”. Kamanjab Lady participant.
