ILIMA Craft Development 2018

The Ilima Learning Centre caters to the community of Lanseria and the workers

of Stature Steel Company to empower and develop skills. This facility houses a school, creche and skills development workshops for adults in the community, primarily women.


Our group was tasked with developing craft projects that will empower and develop the skills of the mothers in the area. Preferably the crafts developed should complement the steel works created in the factory on the property. The crafts that are designed should be sustainable, requiring that the material costs and skills levels be basic yet effective. We will be designing various designs based on embroidery, metal work planters and lampshades.
