Browsing through handcrafted creativity at Kamers

Kamers is ‘South Africa’s pop-up treasure trove of handcrafted creativity’.  The Autumn market is currently being held this long weekend at St John’s College in Johannesburg.  What a beautiful old school for starters !!!!   It was founded in 1898.

I went not once, but twice, to this amazing market!!   Hubby and I went with Elaine yesterday where I took my camera but was sorry I only had the 50mm lens as I couldn’t get decent photos of the magnificent buildings.   Yesterday I went with Jeanette and her friend Madelein with only my mobile phone!   I knew Jeanette would have her camera, so I left the photography to the expert 😉  please read her blog post and view her fabulous photographs  :-

I bought a gorgeous ceramic vase and jug from Storm in a teacup.  Speaking to the stall owner of these stunning items, I was told the skilled throwers are from Zimbabwe ..

  1. My life has been such a madhouse lately that I’m not getting around to reading blogs. Its not going to change over the next two weeks either but after that I need to slow down and relax again. So just to say I didn’t stop reading your blog, just haven’t had much time lately.
