Vainess Mwembe, a beneficiary of Binga Women Empowerment Project from Siachilaba ward, in Binga district, attended a three day long skills training workshop at Mationesa Skills training Centre in Macheke. The handcraft skills training course ran from the 13 to 15 March 2013. The purpose of the training was gaining knowledge of natural dying. The sole reason of this training was to enable the introduction of colour and variety in the products so as to make the artefacts more attractive for the target market. Designed to be a training of trainers course, the activity-packed workshop sought to impart the participant with skills on using natural dyes in the processing of fabrics and colouring of handicrafts.
