MEANDER NEWS (article first published : 1999-06-3)

The Midlands Meander’s exhibit at the Royal Show in Pietermaritzburg features live demonstrations from the route’s artists and crafters. On Friday (June 4), Jo Johnson-Marshall from Witsend will demonstrate T-shirt painting and stained glass making until 15h00. This will be followed by talks on birding and horse-riding trails on the Midlands Meander until 17h00.

The popular range of cheeses from Silkwood can be sampled on Saturday (June 5) from 09h00 to 11h00 along with the Nottingham Road Brewing Co’s traditionally brewed ales and lagers. Silkwood will then present a silk-making demonstration and from 13h00 to 17h00, Thabo’s Antiques will discuss the subject of furniture restoration. Closing off the day will be a demonstration by Exitus of paper-making from 15h00 to 19h00.

The highlight on Sunday (June 6) is the last `spinning’ demo by Shuttleworth Weaving which starts at 09h00. Silkwood’s silk-making demonstration follows from 11h00 to 15h00 and Thabo’s Antiques repeats the furniture restoration story from 13h00 to 17h00.

Meander members are offering prizes worth R8 000. Anyone visiting their exhibition at the Royal Show stands to win vouchers for arts and crafts, cheese and ales as well as accommodation at guest lodges and B&B’s, pub meals and afternoon teas. You’ll find the Midlands Meander exhibition at the Eshayamoya country tourism stand.
