Arts and Crafts free pdf Some of these artistic practices date back to pre-colonial times, for instance the production of household goods, such as clay pots, grass baskets and gourd vessels. In the course of the 20th century, new practices emerged, including the production of large clay sculptures and murals using commercially produced paints. In general these crafts, both old and new, are practised by women living in rural areas, who need to generate income to raise their families. Today, clay pots, grass baskets and other items are produced both for the tourist market and for domestic use, and in this way local artistic traditions have been revitalized.
