Arts and Craft Village lies at the heart of the city, flanked on either sides by magnificent monuments. Shehu Musa Yar’adua Centre on the right and Silverbird Entertainment Centre on the left. With the Sheraton Hotel as a backdrop for the Art and Craft Village, it presents you the opportunity to see and buy some of Nigeria’s art and craft works that represent the country’s culture.
The shops are thatch-roofed huts with walls made from red earth (clay). From little sculpted warrior and horse statuettes, beaded necklaces and bracelets, African traditional masks, traditional leather bags, tie & dye (Adire) clothes to mention a few, you’ll find this a safe shopping spot for local arts and crafts.
If you are a fan of wooden and bronze sculptures and leather artifacts, you will love it. Food and drink stalls are also available.
