Welcome to Light from Africa Foundation

Art in the Forest — Light From Africa

Dear Friends,

Art in the Forest (AITF) will be closing on 15 November 2017 and will cease trading in ceramic art.  Our building in the Cecilia Forest at Constantia Nek has been sold.

During the past nine years we have experienced the joy of creating beautiful handmade ceramics and the satisfaction of seeing our products find new homes with our clients.  It has also been our pleasure to introduce the public to many exciting new ceramic artists and to sell their work in our gallery.  We will continue to follow and support the careers of these artists.

Anthony Shapiro will take over our shop in The Watershed at The Waterfront from 1 December 2017.  He will continue to sell exquisite handmade ceramics and will open a new pottery school on 75 Harrington Street, CBD, in January, 2018.  To enroll or find out more information please email him at  antshap@worldonline.co.za or call on 0828530988.

The Light from Africa Foundation (LFAF) will continue our outreach programs providing creative opportunities and art therapy to disadvantaged youth under the direction of Almarie Pelser.

Innovative new LFAF programs are being designed and will soon be available on our new website.  These programs will focus on building resilience, confidence and self esteem to help disadvantaged children become stronger and more confident individuals.  We will continue fundraising to support our outreach programs.

Thank you for your loyal support over the years.  Our extraordinary project has changed many lives and would not have been possible without our loyal clients and partners.  We offer you our deepest gratitude.

Our hope is that you will continue to support Light from Africa as we proceed with new programs to serve needy children.  It is so gratifying to see their eyes light up when their formerly hidden creativity comes to life.

Warm regards,

Anthony Record MBE, Carole Turner-Record, & the AITF and LFA Teams
