The Flying Carpenters are coming to Chilonga!
It is set: the contract with the Flying Carpenters (in Dutch: Vliegende Meubelmakers) has been signed! Next year July they will come to the community centre in Chilonga to exchange their crafts and knowledge with local woodworkers (both professionals and aspiring ones) and make furniture for us.
This way, we hope to:
- exchange knowledge and skills which will allow participants to create their own woodworks later on
- get multifunctional benches and tables for the community centre and its campsite
- contribute to a sustainable use of the forests around the community centre, thereby protecting the surrounding miombo forest
- document local knowledge on wood and wood related crafts
- allow participants to have a good time, meeting new people and new experiences
