It's a sunny Saturday morning and the lovely ladies of Azizi Life- a local arts cooperative with a beauiful boutique just inside the gates of Heaven- have arrived with satchels of banana leaves in tow. Today they're teaching kids how to make toys out of banana leaves!
Young eyes watch attentively as the artisans' agile hands weave away, and then they get a chance to make their own banana leaf crafts: balls and jump ropes and necklaces..
We all had so much fun, we decided to make the Azizi craft-making a monthly event at Heaven. (Check our our events page for more details on future craft events!)
