We are delighted to report that our beautiful new studio is complete! As tradition dictates, we are waiting for an auspicious day to move in – village elder and Azafady tree nursery manager Sosony will advise us when the right day comes along. We are also in the process of building a shelter for using our stoves on rainy days, and a rainwater harvesting system so we have clean water for drinking and washing embroidery.
Tafa, chief builder in Azafady’s construction team, shows off his handiwork!
Three lovely big doors will let plenty of light in and should attract passers by.
Painted white on the inside to bounce light around and with used engine oil on the outside to protect against termites.
