Craftshop:

  • At the Living Museum there is a craftshop where you can buy crafts, jewellery and common tools of the Mafwe. You will support the whole community of Singalamwe, the village where most of the actors of the Living Museum live. Everyone from Singalamwe - not only the actors of the Living Museum - is encouraged to produce crafts for the craftshop to generate an extra income for the whole community.

  • Up to 4 teachers (group leaders) are free of charge, but others pay the student price.
