Art and Crafts

I will be spending a week in The Solomons in May and don't have a firm itinerary yet. I am really interested in local craft especially weaving and basketware which I have collected in other Pacific locations.

Does anyone know of any womens' cooperatives or other local initiatives where I could see and possibly buy good quality craftware?

Thanks for any helpful info..

The Mothers Union of the Church of Melanesia were about to start a weekly craft market for local women on Saturdays, outside the Church's Headquarters, when I was visiting in january.

You will find them in the middle of Honiara, across the main Highway from South Pacific Oil, and opposite the Hot Bread Kitchen.

(Ask a taxi driver for the "Mission Place").

Thanks very much. That sounds like just the sort of thing I am after and supporting a good cause too.
