THE ART OF CRAFT

House and Leisure (South Africa) - - View -

Next time you head to Spier, pop into the new Spier Ar­ti­san Stu­dio – Stel­len­bosch, ad­ja­cent to the es­tate’s farm-to-ta­ble restau­rant, Eight. Jars con­tain­ing brightly hued glass line the walls, while ar­ti­sans get to work us­ing hand-cut mo­saic or beads to cre­ate in­ter­pre­ta­tions of works by South African fine artists. ‘The open­ing of this space demon­strates the depth of Spier’s com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing the vis­ual arts,’ Spier fam­ily owner Mar­i­ota En­thoven says. ‘[It’s part] of re­con­nect­ing the heart of our farm with its past so that it is once more a hub of ar­ti­sanal ac­tiv­ity.’ The stu­dio is open from Tues­day to Sun­day, 10am to 6pm; email stu­dio2@spier­art­strust.co.za
