Decorate your holiday table with these sweet handmade crochet bees made by the local Jewish Talent of the Peta Becker Projekt in collaboration with Chai Modern of South Africa.
Founded in 2006 by Peta Becker, the Peta Becker Projekt serves as a capacity building initiative amongst underprivileged communities of women from Zimbabwe, Malawi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and South Africa. Using the simple yet effective power of crochet, these women are equipped with the skills to produce masterpieces from a few metres of yarn. They receive ongoing training to encourage innovation and ensure contemporaneity. The women of the Peta Becker Projekt are empowered through this skill-based education, to become artisans and educators in their own right, and to support their families as a result of their economic independence. They have also come to forge lifelong sisterhoods around their shared passion for crochet.
