Mzilikazi Art and Craft Centre

The Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centre is located in the Mzilikazi Township of Bulawayo.

The centre was founded in 1963. It is a Council owned project that was initiated to give youths from Mzilikazi and surrounding communities a chance to obtain skills training in the Arts, so as to create self-help projects to overcome unemployment. School leavers were urged to enrol and learn various skills in the following fields; Pottery, Wood sculpture, fine Art, metal sculpture and ceramics. The centre offers a two-year training course and has managed to train hundreds of talented individuals and helped them realise and nurture their artistic talents. One renowned artiste that has emerged from the school is Dominic Benhura.

The centre was closed for a while because of various challenges but has reopened and visitors may be interested in visiting them to buy some of the fine work made by the students. There is a showroom displaying exquisite pottery, canvas work, and impressive sculptures. Proceeds go to supporting the budding artists and the continuity of this vocational institute.
