SHONGWENI POTTERY OPEN DAY (article first published : 2006-03-23)

Well-known potter Andrew Walford will hold another of his popular Easter Weekend Open Days.

Take a drive into the country and enjoy the spectacular setting of Andrew Walford’s studio which overlooks Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve. Browse around the exhibition of hundreds of pots from hand-basins, wall tiles, vases, teapots, platters, etc.

View the ever-evolving local crafts of Timothy Khumalo’s isithebe and wood carvings, Mrs Zuma’s collectors’ mats and Benedicta’s baskets and colourful floor mats. Ceramic frogs and candlesticks by Ntombikhona will also be on display at the open-air market under the frangipani trees.

Meet friends on the lawn over tea or home-brewed lemonade, hot cross buns and Easter quiche.

On April 16 from 10h00 to 17h00, there will be an exhibition of paintings by students of Shirley Howells at Under the Marula. Proceeds of this event will go towards the Shongweni Conservancy to help preserve the very special ecology in the valley.

The Easter Weekend Open Days at Andrew Walford’s Studio run from April 14 to 17 from 10h00 to 18h00. More information on 031 7691363 or visit www.andrewwalford.co.za

Directions: Take Shongweni exit off N3 freeway and follow signs for 8 kms to B9 Shongweni Valley.
