This May, you’ll find us at the newly renovated Castle of Good Hope with over 100 talented makers.
“The Castle’s renovations have been completed and I am so excited to present KAMERS/Makers in the most beautiful venue.
“I urge visitors to explore the buildings and to embrace the labyrinthian layout of the show. All the rooms, nooks and crannies add to the magic of KAMERS,” says Wanda du Toit, KAMERS/Makers co-owner and Chief Creative Officer.
A third of the makers who will be exhibiting are new to this particular show, and many are young entrepreneurs carefully chosen and nurtured by our team. They are ready to show their talent for the very first time at a KAMERS event.
“As always, I am astounded by the talent this country of ours produces.” – Wanda du Toit
Here are a few of those newbies to look out for:
