African accessories

gitas 1 Mariatu Turay of Gitas Portal specialises in contemporary, African-inspired ladies’ and children’s fashion, handmade slippers, jewellery and handbags.

At Making Uncovered she will be showing how to make fabric headbands for children and adults, and how to make the best use of your leftover fabrics by turning them into coin purses.


What do you like about your art/craft? Why did you get into it?

I love the fact that I have free rein to bring an idea or vision to life and that my customers appreciate what I do. I got into it because I thoroughly enjoy designing and making clothes and accessories and I come alive when I do – can’t help myself.

Why are you taking part in making uncovered?

It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet people and share what I do and engage others in the actual making process, which ordinarily would be behind the scenes. People usually see the finished produce and not the making process.

What will you be teaching people and why should they sign up? 

I’ll be running short, 20-minute workshops showing people how to make little purses and simple headbands that could also be used as a neckpiece. If you’ve got strips of material lying about in the house and you want to do something that’s simple, quick and fun to give to friends, with that added personal touch (you made it), then come along.

    Good point. I hadn’t thhougt about it quite that way. 🙂

  3. Lähdin hymyillen tabata-tunnille (olinhan aikaisemminkin tehnyt) ja tulin niin hikisenä pois, että silmiä kirveli. Toisin sanoen täydellinen tunti. Seuraavana päivänä takareidet olivat niin juntturassa, että lenkille lähtö oli mätäkuun juttuja. Loistava ”tunti” ja varmasti menen sinne uudestaan.

    +7For those of us who like smaller high-end phones, it compares very damn well. The best we’ve got are the RAZR M and One S, and their hardware just isn’t as good.

    Hey! Just got your comment on my last post.. I DO drink protein after I lift and I feel like it does make a difference I use either soy or whey protein and most brands taste delish!

  6. Hi Jenika,I just updated my website with the “WHY” clients should contact me, this part was missing for me.. Thank you for the inspiration and motivation to just do it! Love your website. Juliet recently posted..[]

  7. Maybe I was the guy he was with on the phone! But seriously, I wanted to write from the prospective of offering some lessons. Luckily my symptoms don’t usually get too bad, but what if they could have been life threatening, or if I was someone needing medication for extreme hypertension or epilepsy? And why was their only recourse through social media channels to direct you to their phone lines? Why have them if you’re unable to use them for anything?
