Brilliantly decorated with colourful ceramic murals, this is one of the most impressive buildings in the townships. A host of community classes are held here, including beadwork and the making of traditional garments and pottery. Performances by local groups are often staged in the outdoor amphitheatre. It’s a good place to shop for local crafts and you can meet artists such as Odon, who teaches sand-painting classes here and sells his own canvases.

There’s a Cape Town Tourism office here, too: enquire with them about whether the planned apartheid pass laws museum for the nearby old Native Affairs Office has opened.
