Rwenzori Art Centre

Perfectly located in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains lies Rwenzori Arts Centre, Sculpture Gallery and Coffee Bar. The centre is conveniently placed just off the main road between Queen Elizabeth National Park and Fort Portal, only 11km from Kasese.This spectacular award-winning complex sits in harmony with its restored natural landscape; the coffee bar terrace offers a comfortable place to relax and enjoy panoramic views of the Mountains of the Moon.Visitors are treated to a stunning display of works cast in the adjacent foundry by talented local craftsmen. Pure white Ugandan marble carvings rub shoulders with soapstone and bronze sculptures. Specially commissioned, a series of over 30 Clan Totem animals in bronze are also permanently on show. Capturing the magnificence of iconic species such as Elephant, Colobus and Hippo, the series includes more elusive creatures like the Pangolin and the Otter.These remarkable works come about through exchange projects between artists in Africa and Europe and are inspired by the people, culture, wildlife and beauty of Uganda and make the perfect memento to mark an unforgettable journey. All works are for sale and can be shipped on request.Depending on availability, it may be possible to tour the workshops for a modest $5 donation to Ruwenzori Sculpture Foundation which supports Rwenzori Founders and many other cultural projects in Uganda.We look forward to welcoming you.

This art center is also a foundry. They specialize in making amazing (small and big) sculptures in bronze and have some on display. The location is very peaceful and clean. Staff is knowledgeable and kind. Spent two hours visiting and talking with them. Worth a visit.

My wife and I stumbled onto this place when walking around Kampala, but I'd really recommend going out of your way to check out this shop. Really cool way to promote reuse of products and directly impacting the community in need.

I stopped in during the Christmas Market, and ended up running out twice to get more cash, everything was so cute! The clothing is very well made, and the designer knows exactly what will look good on your body (I doubted at first but she knows her stuff!). The jewelry is gorgeous and there's also a selection of high-quality natural soaps and skin care products. This is a must-visit!

Wawoto Kacel Cooperative Society

Reviewed By johnmagee412 - Saint Louis, United States

COVID-19 took away my trip to Uganda and Gulu. I was reliving some of my favorite places in Uganda, and this is a highlight of the trip. First of all, if you go to Uganda, you have to bring back gifts for family and friends, Their shop is a must stop. Friendly people, at times you can see them working, and great items at reasonable prices, plus talk to the women—ask them the meaning of Wawoto Kacel. Easiest way to get there take a fun Boda, Boda ride. Just tell them Waworo Kacel next to the Golden Peace Hotel.
