South African Makers

For HandEye Magazine

May 27, 2014 by Irene Vermeulen

Irene made visits to designer and maker workshops in the Cape Town region, and made photo reports for HandEye Magazine, one of the best online resources on handmade design and crafts.

Irene visited the township of DuNoon to visit a group of women basket weavers, saw potters getting their hands dirty in The Potter's Workshop, and the atelier of ceramist designer Clementina van der Walt. She spotted crazy crochet crafts imagined by Peta Becker, and quirky beadwork by Monkey Biz. Take a trip through sunny South Africa by checking out the photo galleries and articles on HandEye!
