AFRICA AIRDRY CLAY TRINKET DISH
SPECIAL EDITION FUNDI BOX KIT FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH
By Comfort Smithson from Fundi Box
18th October, 2020
As October is UK black history month, it is a time when we reflect, recognise and celebrate all the contributions made by people of black African and Caribbean decent. I believe it is important for us to create a physical reminder of where all these journeys in history began. Back home!
You’ll have everything you need to make a beautiful trinket dish in the shape of Africa (painted in black and gold) – the perfect addition to your favourite table!
The kit included:
- Air dry clay
- Black acrylic paint
- Gold Acrylic paint
- Paint brushes
- Rolling pin
- Africa map template
- Full instructions to guide you through
Our featured gift was a hand-curved standing Gorilla keyring from Uganda.

FEATURED ARTISANS IN THIS BOX
Wood carvers from Uganda
These gorilla key rings have been carved by hand (and feet!) by a small team of young carvers from the communities bordering the southern sector of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda, to promote the conservation of the gorillas’ habitats
If you are interested in buying some in the UK or Europe, you can find some more lovely pieces from the Bwindi Handmade, who so generously sourced our gifts for this month.
