We've been commissioned to make a custom chair for office furniture company Ukhuni - I can't wait to see the end result!

Wildlife inspiration 


I've just come back from a lovely holiday at the Kruger. It was thrilling to see all those magnificent animals roaming freely. It also made me realise that we've captured quite a few of them in our Mielie medium. Only those delinquent hyenas and the stately rhinoceros still need to be mielie'ed.

Confession time: We did once do a rhino, but everyone thought is the love child of narwhal and a manatee.

Still Life with Fish 


Requested by Yvette, imagined by Adri, woven by Zanele. The end.

Feeling the blues 


I love the colour of this wall. I see it often in Khayelitsha, both as an interior and an exterior paint. While we are waiting for Zanele's house to be built, we either meet at Vuyelwa's house with its zingy apple-meets-lime green walls, or at Zanele's boyfriend's house, where the calming aqua walls create a illusion of cool serenity in spite of the stifling heat in the uninsulated shack.

Aqua? Celestine blue? Duck egg? Light Turquoise? This wall by any other name feels just as cool!

Now's the time to throw some clothing out! 


You've probably heard about the huge fire in Khayelitsha in which 4000 people lost their homes and all their possessions on New Year's day. Zanele has been going through her clothing, setting aside what she no longer neads I have been doing the same. We took five big bags through to the Khayelitsa fire station on Friday. If you have items of clothing, blankets or non-perishable food that you would like to donate just drop them off at your nearest fire station or Pick n Pay store. What a brilliant idea to make the fire station the collection point!
