TThe culture of the Venda people in places like Makhado, Elim, Giyani and Thohoyandou is steeped in legend and myth, and this is reflected in the amazing sculpture, pottery and artwork found along the somewhat informal Venda art route, where you can visit the makeshift studios of the artists when they are in residence and, of course, buy incredible Venda artworks to take home. The art consists of paintings, etchings, sculpture, woodcarving, beadwork, pottery and textiles. When delegates visit the area, they have the opportunity to interact with the artists who either work from their home studio or the art centre. At the Thohoyandou Art and Culture Centre, visitors may get the opportunity to meet Avahashoni Mainganye and his students.
