Three women artists showcase at Thapong

Three women artists, Keabetswe Kanasi, Dintle Mogaleemang and Rebecca de Figueiredo, will today showcase their works in an exhibition called "Painting and Pottery Exhibition" at Thapong Visual Centre.

The two potters are both from Old Naledi in Gaborone. The women say they were not always potters but joined the trade thanks to Matlo-go-sha-mabapi support group, which introduced them to Integrated Field Services (IFS), which was then looking for women to teach pottery.
