made in the cape showcase
Next weekend (3-5 August 2012) Cavendish Square will be hosting ‘Made in the Cape’, a 3-day showcase of innovative, handmade, original, designer products from local artists, crafts people and designers.

According to organisers, the participants have been very carefully selected, with products that are all locally handmade, with high level of creativity, quality and innovation.

Whilst shopping malls are not my favourite place for spending time, I think it’s a great way for connecting talented creatives with shoppers who might not otherwise have ventured to market… And in the winter months especially, Capetonians tend to go into hibernation, so having an indoor space like this one will definitely benefit the traders.

This event is the first of a series, and I look forward to seeing the creative talent on display. Have a look at the event’s Facebook page for a preview.
