The Mabira Beads workshop experience includes a free tour where you will learn the history of Mabira Collective’s incredible team, hear about how our artisans and their families benefit, and see the local materials used to create our products. We hope you will choose to take part in our cultural exchange and jewelry-making class, where you will enjoy traditional welcome songs and get your hands dirty shaping clay beads and designing your own piece of jewelry.
