Tunbung Art Village Tujereng
Close to Farakunku Lodges, is Tunbung Art Village…a community art project started by Etu Ndow who was the owner and resident artist with teaching experience in school and on TV in The Gambia and who had exhibited work internationally in Europe and West Africa.
Since his passing, his nephew Abdoulie has taken up the mantle and continues with the successful half-day workshops (for a minimum of 2 people) in screen printing, painting and crafts using natural materials. The ‘studio’ is outside in the shady grounds of the family’s land in the unspoilt woodland between us and the sea. Several decorated huts have been built in the compound, using natural stone, recycled artefacts and reclaimed bricks from destroyed Portuguese colonial buildings. A gallery/museum of Etu’s work is now on permanent exhibition for visitors.
Please contact us for more details and prices. We highly recommend that guests enjoy some time at Tunbung if they would like to create their own piece of African art to take home!
Prices range from £32-£52 for 2 persons, depending on activity.
Please enquire about exact pricing once you have selected an activity.
