From our craft students and teachers

When I first came to Imbali I thought they only taught drawing. But I found out that they make many things that I did not know I could do. Now I am in my third year and am able to teach other people what I am learning from Imbali. Imbali is a very good project and if I was to come back I would. I have learned a lot more than I thought and it has made me understand what art is and how to speak though it.’  Katlego Chuene
