      Maker's Story - Jemimah, F.R.E.E.

      Jemimah is interested in entrepreneurship and says, "I have decided to centre my focus on making jewellery."

      "I have a passion for making unique and authentic jewellery and would love to see more of our Zambian people appreciate these extremely beautiful pieces of art. I believe the type of jewellery a person wears tells a significant story about them and I am excited to be part of creating the story."

      Maker's Story - Natasha Evans, Visual Artist

      "Art to me is innate.  It has to resonate, and at the very least, it has to be honest."

      Natasha is a contemporary mixed media artist whose work originates from her innate responses to the world around her. Process is a fundamental element of her pieces, which range from purely abstract to figurative, from multimedia collage on canvas to ink on paper.

      Maker's Story  - The Amazing Grace

      The amazing Grace! Why are the Mulberry Mongoose ladies called courageous?

      Working in the heart of the Zambian bush is not for sissy's for a start. We frequently chase baboon out of the shop or run inside as elephant are passing within metres of our woodwork area. One day we were sat peacefully at our desks when an elephant's head appeared through the door; it was a mixture of noise (the door split into pieces), amusing, wonderful and terrifying!
