COW DUNG PAINTING EXPERIENCE
Resident Special EA Citizen Special


From USD   460* | from £ 0 335.8*

for 2 people

This Experience starts from Azizi Life’s office & boutique in Muhanga Town (about a one hour drive from
Kigali).

Years ago in the time of the Rwandan Kings, there once was a prince who decided to decorate his house
by molding geometric shapes onto the wall of his hut using cow dung. In time, this technique was
developed into a popular form of traditional Rwandan art called “Imigongo.” During your Experience,
you will learn the history and technique of Imigongo art and then make your own piece to take away
with you.

At noontime, you’ll share a simple local meal with your artisan teacher, with plenty of time to chat and
learn about each other’s lives. After lunch, it is back to your own work of art with sanding and
painting. You will love being with the artisan, and we can assure you whilst you work together you will
also be laughing together.

The day finishes with a cold Fanta and a chance to think back over the highlights of the day. You can
browse through some of the other beautiful crafts made by the Azizi Life artisans and do a little fair
trade shopping.
