Qubeka is a fine African art beading studio run by four dynamic artists and business women. What started as simple idea – to collaborate and interpret the work of some of South Africa’s finest artists in beaded panels, has grown to become an inspiring, unique art expression. Today, Qubeka Bead Studio collaborates with some of our country’s leading artists to translate their works into beautiful beaded creations.
Qubeka means the continuation in Xhosa. A Qubeka artwork, in all of its colour, intricate detail and delicate grandeur, represents just a little something of the artist’s personal joy and passion and the beautiful story each continues to write.
Since its official beginning in 2006, Qubeka now boasts works in the Spier Contemporary Art Collection in Stellenbosch, Hollard Insurance in Johannesburg, Nando’s South Africa, Nando’s UK & Australia as well as various private collections around the world. Great method to create african patterns and colours.
