Tanya Schemmer started doing arts and crafts projects from an early age.
She says that the shop is ideal for someone who loves making crafts. “It’s my hobby, I love making things that others will appreciate.’’
At Emage Workshop you will find hand-made original crafts, souvenirs and gifts created by Tanya and her team.
Many of the crafts are made from recycled materials and also include natural elements reflecting Namibia’s environment, such as sand, shells and feathers.
Tanya says that nature inspires her and that her souvenirs are ideal for tourists, who are able to find gifts that will remind them of their time spent in Namibia. “I like making small souvenirs, so that tourists can take something home, something uniquely Namibian”.
Visitors to the Emage Workshop will find a variety of items, such as beaded cutlery and bangles. Games, keyrings, magnets, stationery and a variety of bottles filled with “Namibia”.
