Visiting KAMERS/Makers Irene 2018

KAMERS/Makers Irene took place at a brand new Pretoria venue – Cornwall Hill College. This show was the biggest event to date with over 200 artisan crafters. Each of the tickets included a limited edition KAMERS/Makers shopper bag, new magazine as well as a Consol Glass Curvy glass bottle to refill at Bluewater’s purified water stands.

We’re not into the perfectly made or the mass produced – it’s about high end true craft, slightly imperfect, timeless and originally designed… that special something that is only found at the show.

This years show was a stunner with plenty of clothing, jewellery, ceramics and decor stalls to swoon over. What I love each year about the KAMERS/Makers events are that there is literally nothing on show that is not worth buying or wanting! The food was delicious and the atmosphere inviting – a must in my annual calendar! You can view a complete list of the kamers vol Geskenke exhibitors here.
