So here you all are – 1 slideshow of the whole shebang – the range, the pieces, the work put on show at Design Indaba last weekend. It was a wonderful wonderful experience and a huge thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello, to have a look, and to those who bought pieces – may you enjoy every second of wearing them!
For those of you who are intersted in more information – here are the colours of cord, and a selection of coral or turquoise. I love making each piece slightly different, and this is constantly helped by suppliers changing their stock! If you have special requests, colours or favourite stones – let me know.
…to Design Indaba! Everything seems to be going according to plan – in its own way. BUT there simply is not enough time to do every thing AND post snazzy pics here, so I’ll generously give you a link to my Exhibitor page on the DI site, and invite you to come and say hello at Stand 33.01, if you are in Cape Town from 01 March – 04 March. (do feel free to bring cake and lashings of ginger pop!)
Dum dum dum… Design Indaba! I am super excited to have been given funding by SEDA and the CCDI to exhibit at DI from 2 ~ 4 March. But hells bells, there is a lot to do and time, weirdly, doesn’t seem to be waiting. Very strange.
BUT, it will all be Fine ~ and Fun ~ and Fabulous…
Now, I leave you with some process pics and look forward to seeing you at stand 33.01
Since 1994, Art of Africa has annually presented two large mixed group exhibitions, in May/June and November at Fillingdon Farm, and is open by appointment for the remainder of the year. Each exhibition opens on a Saturday and runs for nine days until the end of the following Sunday, from 10am – 5pm.
Every exhibition is a combination of work by both new and familiar artists, with two common threads. Firstly, each artist has a link with Africa; most live there, but some travel out to paint or sculpt. Secondly, all work is original handcraft, made where possible from the natural materials for which Africa is famed; stone, silver, cotton, clay, wood, mohair, leather etc.”
