The Keiskamma Art Project, started by Carol Hofmeyer in 2000, provides work to over 130 people from Hamburg and the surrounding rural villages in the Eastern Cape. They make embroidered, beaded and appliquéd handbags, cushion covers, quilts, linen and tapestries, and have also produced a number of large artworks. The 126 metre Keiskamma Tapestry, which records the history of the Eastern Cape, now hangs permanently in the Parliament Building in Cape Town.
