In March 2012, the Africa Craft Trust, in partnership with The New Basket Workshop, conducted a customised four day costing and pricing workshop in Lupane, Zimbabwe at the Lupane Women's Centre with representatives from both the Women's Centre and the Binga Craft Centre.
The Lupane Women's Centre represents over 300 talented basket weavers who export their beautiful products to South Africa and overseas.
"The learning methodology (used) was very participatory (and) the facilitators were very excellent on giving more time to participants. The workshop was mainly covered by practical exercises.
The workshop was not "another workshop," it was really beneficiary especially after a continuation from the Access Markets for Profit in Joburg." - M. Matabeki, Workshop participant from Binga, Zimbabwe
