  • GoGo Olive

    GoGo Olive

    Gogo Olive was set up in Mutare in the Eastern Highlands of Zimabwe in November 2008 to give local women the opportunity to use their craft skills to build a future for themselves and their families. Knitting was chosen as it only requires basic materials, it can be done anywhere and at any time and is a skill that is practical for the women to learn. We began as a small group of 6 ladies and following the success of this group we have added to the numbers and also introduced the group into a local prison. Over 25 women are now involved in Gogo Olive. Knitting the animals has become a part of the rehabilitation process for the women in prison, it gives them something positive to focus on and allows them to meet practical needs that they or their families have, both whilst they are in prison and after release. Each animal is lovingly and completely handmade and has as much individuality and character as the lady who knitted it!

    Amos Guta

    Here is the story of the creator of these sculptures in his own words: "I, Amos Guta, was born on 25 May 1972, and brought up by my blacksmith father. I did smithing very well during all my schooling years...I hunted for jobs and failed until 1994, when God handed me over to Artwork Missions. After my training, I started woodcarving and then designed fine art. In 1996, God multiplied my ideas and I became the first person to create sculptures from metal shavings."
