‘Crafts Alive’ is an expression of creativity, festive fun and artistic flair. An opportunity to showcase the talents that abound at the Bryanston Organic & Natural Market, where artists and crafters have been nurtured for the past 40 years in a holistic, supportive community environment that allows them to prosper and express their gifts.
‘Crafts Alive’ starts on March 17, extends over Humans Rights Day on March 21 and ends on March 26.
Crafters and artists will be at work, demonstrating and exhibiting their unique talents. These include stone masonry, metal forging, glass fusion and polishing, jewellery making, bead and wirework, creating pottery on a potter’s wheel, painting, woodwork, embroidery & crochet work, shoe making, machine and hand crafted leatherwork, and much more. They welcome interaction from customers about their techniques, the processes used, their choice of materials and designs, and are happy to offer handy tips for DIY projects.
There are plenty of crafting activities to entertain children of all ages as well. Prices for these activities start at R35 and include candle making, sand art, ceramic painting, T-shirt painting and Easter crafts. ‘Crafts Alive’ offers you an opportunity to enjoy the last days of summer, enjoying the many exhibitions and interactive displays. All the usual stalls will also be open, as well as five coffee shops where you can enjoy a wholesome and nutritious light meal or a piece of home made cake and coffee or cappuccino.
