Every year the Kamers Vol Geskenke team screens creatives from around the country, and selects 200 of the best to showcase their work at their annual fair. From what I hear, it really is quite spectacular, and very well worth the trip to Somerset West.

I’m headed that way tomorrow, and look forward to seeing what beautiful creations are to be found in the ‘Carousel of Creativity’.

The event officially runs from Tuesday 25th to Saturday 29th October 2011, with its preview opening night tonight (5pm-8pm – R150). Day tickets costs R45 and are best bought in advance via Computicket, especially if you hope to avoid queues (weekend in particular!).

Kamers Vol Geskenke : Event Details

Kamers Vol GeskenkeThe ninth Kamers Vol Geskenke 2011 promises to be a colourful celebration of local creativity, innovation and talent. This year the Carousel of Creativity will showcase some 200 stall holders over six inspiration-filled days with the popular event taking place from 25-29 October 2011 at Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West.

With its emphasis on handcrafted wares, from jewellery to gourmet products, ceramics, soft furnishings, tableware, décor accessories, designer garden gear and clothing, Kamers is not into the perfectly made or the mass produced – it’s about high end true craft, slightly imperfect, timeless and originally designed… that special something that is only found at the show.
