If you’re anywhere near the Fringe District today and are interested in supporting local craft producers, you might like to check out the ‘Pashasha Pop-up Shop’, on today (11 May 2012) from 10am to 3pm.
The pop-up shop features twelve craft producers who have taken part in a retail readiness workshop with the Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI).
Their handmade products include jewellery, bags, decor items, children’s ware, cards and homeware. The craft producers are based all over Cape Town – Mitchell’s Plain to Claremont, Khayelitsha to Sea Point.
“The shop is an opportunity for craft producers to put into practice the learnings from the workshop and to get feedback from the public,” said CCDI creative training unit co-ordinator Dammon Rice.
The Pashasha pop-up shop will be set up in the CCDI’s Creative Enterprise Training Unit (Second floor, Harrington House, 37 Barrack Street, The Fringe)
The CCDI organises numerous business support and creativity workshops. Fees are generally R30/day for CCDI-registered craft producers, and R550/day for non-CCDI registered people. (Registration is free). Contact: CCDI Creative Training Unit admin assistant Eunice Freeman, 021 461 4696 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to book for a workshop.
