This is a place where all things handmade are cherished. Here you will find intriguing pieces of adornment made using interesting materials in unusual ways. Think bold, carved, forged, rough and full of soul. Add to this a sprinkling of whimsy and magic.
isiShweShwe, dubbed the tartan of Southern Africa, is also part of what we do here. Pure cotton, woven and printed in Zwelitsha, Eastern Cape, this fabric is a longstanding cultural icon. Notebooks, sarongs and bowties form part of our ShweShwe product range; our African Prayerflags are one of Erin Frances Creative’s signature products. Selected “Three Cats” ShweShwe prints are also available for sale by the metre from the studio.
The jewellery-making classes on offer are relaxed and intimate, and suitable for all levels of experience. Students are given freedom to experiment with instruction in traditional silversmithing techniques. A range of student’s work is on display in the studio, and we host sale events and exhibitions throughout the year.
We are always on the lookout for new retail outlets and would be happy to send you our wholesale catalogue on request.
