This multi-faceted workshop-cum-art-shop emporium is foremost a workshop employing artisans who produce characteristically Ghanaian and West African goods: emblematic Adinkra collectibles, beautifully finished wooden furniture, ceramics, bespoke textiles and jewellery wrought of silver and bull horn. Most of the beautifully-sculpted brass items are created by artisans still using the lost wax method. It’s brimming with handmade art objects, collectibles, homewares, furniture, handbags, musical instruments and other design products, many created through humanitarian projects in Ghana. There’s a good, tightly-curated selection of books too. New lines are being added all the time, and many of the items are bespoke for Wild Gecko. Out the back there’s a couple of huge (really huge) Sulcata tortoises, the biggest species in Africa and a monkey.
