Welcome to Art Earth! We specialise in African Arts and Crafts. We are located at the rear of Blackrock market, opposite Artic Stone and next to the Asian Food Shop.
Art Earth is an attempt to make change in a different way, by promoting African art. We try to create new markets for African artisans, strengthening livelihoods for artisans’ families and communities. We offer an alternative to the traditional charitable sector for those who wish to make a contribution in a progressive, sustainable way – by buying beautiful hand made art from Africa.
We source all of our products ourselves. For example, our fantastic Bolga Baskets come from women’s cooperatives in the Bolgatanga region of Northern Ghana. We buy oil paintings direct from a number of upcoming artists in Kenya, Namibia and Ghana. Our jewellery is handcrafted in a number of different African countries. We have products in stock from countries including Uganda, Tanzania, Namibia, Malawi, Congo, Kenya, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Ghana and Burkina Faso. We continually source new great products.
Just now we have great ideas for Christmas gifts in stock, including jewellery, fabrics, scarves, clothes, baskets, handbags, carvings, wooden bowls and spoons, paintings and drawings, candlesticks and holders, cushion covers and more. We also have super handmade Christmas tree decorations and hand crafted nativity sets!
