About

You drive past a multitude of artisans daily and you often think ‘wow that’s pretty cool’. The skill and workmanship that goes into these pieces is astounding.  How about you adopt this artisan and give him/her a platform to showcase their wares.

All you have to do is take some pics and email them to us and we’ll put them on this blog. Also send us their names and contact details or where we can find them. (And possibly a price list if you can.)

Maybe you’re a design whizz and you’d like to create some business cards for your artisan or you’d like to collaborate with them – see this great example of designers working with artisans to create beautiful unique pieces. http://indaloproject.co.za/

Let’s see if we can help a talented local artisan reach a wider audience.

Please let us know if you have ideas/suggestions on how we can improve on this idea.

    Hi, lovely idea, will definitely be following this blog!

    I have an unusual request –
    I was just wondering about the artist Anna Mahlangu….we had a Anna Mahlangu that worked for my parents and looked after me for many years with much love and care but I’ve lost contact with her. Would it be possible to ask Anna is she is the Anna Mahlangu that worked in Klapperbos Street, Kilnerpark, Pretoria. My Anna was a Ndebele and made the most beautiful art work from beads. I would so love to make contact with her again, hope you can help me.

    Kind regards
