Paarl is a town about 65 kilometres north of Cape Town in the heart of the winelands. We spent yesterday evening there at the opening at Gallery 88 and then today at the Heritage Village celebrations which were a bit fuddy-duddy but nevertheless rather fun. One of the main aims of this particular event was to bridge cultural gaps between a rather diverse and divided local population. So this was a start; and surely, with time and experience, future such events could be very significant.

Tomorrow, Thursday, there is a spring shopping festival at The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock. Flower sellers will be out in full force and each shop will have a table with some special goodies on it...amazing homeware to funky jewellery; vintage and retro furnishings, coffee to gourmet preserves and super sexy clothes...so if you are taking your long weekend off early (Friday is Heritage Day) then pop down to the Old Biscuit Mill, 375 Albert Road, Woodstock.
And if you missed our SJOE! launch, you can view a beautiful display of the range in our shop at the Mill.
There is also a beer festival happening late afternoon and on 'til late...

The opening of the exhibition was wonderful, lots of people, lots of interest AND lots of sales. The walkabout turned into a poignant discussion on the role of hand crafts and studio ceramics in the 21st Century. All in all, a great day...now back in cloudy and somewhat chilly Cape Town..and on to the next project!

We've had a fabulous response to the new range - here are some of the snapshots prior to the crowds of people arriving. We were too busy during the event to take pictures!
