The Craft Market at Spier - 2018/2019 Season Is Open
By: Sue Heathcock   (2018-10-23)

We’ve had the best start to the season ever, since we opened on 1st October, and what is really exciting is that a whole spread of products have been selling well. Many of our established artists from previous years have developed new lines for the new season, and we’ve welcomed 11 new artists among us, so there’s a fresh energy to kick summer off in style. As always the market is designed as a space for creative entrepreneurs to shine, with the larger percentage of each sale going to the artist, and an ethos of community, caring and co-operation.

Over the winter Spier Wine Farm have re-landscaped the main visitor area with a whole new layout between the Wine Centre, the lawns, 8 Restaurant and the Werf, including extending the dam by several metres and new steps and pathways. It’s really opened up the visual and physical flow, so that all the areas connect together more fluidly. Our market space is now highly visible, with one of the main flights of steps leading directly to the market entrance, where we are still sheltered and shaded by our circular glade of trees.

This season we are introducing various added-value activities at the market. These making experiences can be booked online. We’re also offering gifting for events, and pop-up shops or market experiences off site.

We’ll be introducing each of our new artists through the season with interviews and features on the blog, and re-visiting established artists, but in the mean time see below for a list of artists starting off this summer season.

Please come and visit to see their work, meet some of the artists each day as they work on their new pieces, and fall in love with some of Cape Town’s best hand-made African art.

We’re open 7 days a week 10h00 – 17h30
