Add a splash of handmade creativity to your next event

If you can’t come to the Craft Market at Spier, we can come to you!

Sue Heathcock Projects has various mobile offerings that are ideal for bringing a rainbow of creativity and colour to events, conferences and even private celebrations. Ask us about customising any of the options listed to work indoors or outdoors in Cape Town and surrounds.

Making experiences

Our hands-on making experiences have been a hit at the market this year. Working under the guidance of one of our artists you make your own piece to take home, with the choice of various techniques and materials, including jewellery, beaded wirework, telephone wire, leather, painting and more.

These can be adapted according to the situation, as team-building workshops, fun creativity breaks in a conference, or ice-breaking sessions at any gathering. See above some pictures of previous VIP making experiences (pre-Covid hence no masks - the 2021 edition is fully masked and sanitized!) arranged as special add-ons to conferences.

Adults can easily get fascinated with more complex detail and spend an hour or more engrossed in making. For children, ask us about the optimal time-frames - older children can enjoy longer and more challenging making experiences, while younger children often prefer seeing results in 30 minutes or less. We will quote according to your brief.

Pop-up shop

Want to add local colour to a conference or event and wow international guests? Let us bring a beautifully customized shopping experience to you, featuring high-quality handmade items by local artisans. The shop can be scaled up or down with modular display furniture to fit your needs and is professionally styled. We provide an experienced sales coordinator, credit card facilities and packaging.

Pop-up market

Re-create the atmosphere of our market on a smaller scale. Two or more of our artists will give demonstrations of their techniques and we will curate and style product displays with a selection of handmade items for your guests to browse and shop. Add in the making experiences described above to entertain your guests in creative hands-on activity. We provide an experienced sales coordinator, credit card facilities and packaging.


Keep things local and sustainable, giving handmade gifts that the recipients will love. Ask us for suggestions from our corporate gift catalogue for conference gifts and room drops. We can also provide gift vouchers for our online shop and gallery CraftArt.Africa should you wish to spoil your guests with their choice of beautiful handmade craft and art.
