A reminder that the Creative Workshops will once again take place at the Visual Arts Department, Stellenbosch University - from Monday 9 to Friday 13 September during the university recess. It gives the general public an opportunity to make use of the infrastructure of the arts department as well as their teaching skills by means of enrolling for one of a variety of short courses.

Experienced arts practitioners will facilitate the workshops thereby ensuring quality instruction.


All the courses are introductory, but can also be attended by artists who wish to become acquainted with new disciplines. 10 participants per course ensure special attention to each individual. Courses are offered only if at least 4 participants registered for a particular course. 

Duration of each workshop is 5 days and the cost includes about 30 hours of teaching, practical work and outings where necessary. On the Friday, at 17h30, there will be an exhibition of work completed during the week. Friends and family can join for a glass of wine.
