SA’s original artisan ‘up’-market is back with two autumn shows.
KAMERS/Makers was blessed with a record-breaking 2018 – new Makers (more than 30% of the Makers at each show were new to the artisan community), new venues, new cities… and more than 50 000 visitors.
We can be proud that, firstly, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are thriving in South Africa; and secondly, that so many consumers appreciate the value and magic that a truly unique, locally made artisan product can offer.
This has informed the theme for 2019: Celebrating The Artisan Way.
KAMERS/Makers is giving its largest ever number of new artisan entrepreneurs a boost in 2019, with a much-requested second Johannesburg show. KAMERS/Makers Spring will happen over Spring Week (end August/beginning September).
But first, the show will kick off the year in the heart of Cape Town on Kloof Street, at Jan van Riebeeck High School before returning to Joburg at St David’s Marist Inanda in Sandton.
Your ticket to celebrating the most innovative in homeware, fashion, decor, jewellery, beauty, food, wine and more also includes a limited-edition KAMERS/Makers shopper bag, Consol glass water bottle and a new magazine.
KAMERS/Makers Cape Town runs from 9am – 5pm between 16 and 19 March at Jan van Riebeeck High School, Kloof Street, while KAMERS/Makers Joburg runs from 9am – 5pm between 26 April and 1 May at St David’s Marist Inanda, Sandton.
Tickets cost R60 via plankton.mobi and R90 at the entrance, which includes a limited-edition KAMERS/Makers shopper bag, Consol glass water bottle and magazine. Multi-entry tickets cost R120. Group discounts: Buy three, get one free. Students and pensioners pay R60 and those under the age of 18 enter for free.
