To celebrate Women’s Month and their new the Atelier in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD, PICHULIK is launching an intimate series of Wonder Workshops.

Housed in a charming heritage building at 8 Watson Street, the double-story, wooden-floored and white molded oasis of PICHULIK‘s new Atelier and flagship retail space is a haven from the bustle of the city. Sculptural pottery and origami-inspired Xandre Kriel furniture, are combined with contemporary floral design, leather-bound vintage books and ceramics, to showcase a curated selection of handcrafted jewellery.
