The Art Factory

The Art Factory is a small shop situated in the Information Centre in the main street of Groot-Marico.  Local artists are given the opportunity to present and sell their wares. All items are hand made. You can buy anything from an elephant (statue) to a needle. You will get wonderful presents here for your loved ones. Egbert, the shop manager, is a mine of information on anything in the Marico. He is a guy with a very long beard. You cannot miss him!
