Come Visit the Weaving Studio at the New Dawn Center
Watch the women weave and spin. Spend time at the creche with the very friendly preschool children. Admire and maybe lend a hand in the community gardens. Enjoy the popular Seeds of Light art classes and see their 3 wonderful murals. Come share or watch the magic unfold and be inspired.
The Mapusha studio is located 6km off the R40 which runs between Klaserie and Bushbuckridge. Driving from Hoedspruit towards Bushbuckridge, take a left at the robot for Acornhoek, located 5.4km after the Orpen Road turn off. Drive 4.3km through the center of Acornhoek, until you reach a sign for Dingleydale. Here, turn right onto a dirt road, drive approximately 2km, pass the mission on your right and shortly after you will see a sign for New Dawn on the right, turn here and the gate for the New Dawn center is visible about a block down the road on the left. You will see the Elephant wall mural and the Mandela mural beckoning you in!
