…the Design Indaba Expo…

As most of you already know handmade by me will be exhibiting at the Design Indaba Expo over the next few days. I am really excited and have been working on some cool new DIY projects which will help showcase my products at the event. Its open to the public on friday, saturday and sunday and well worth a visit! Do pop in and say hi if you’re there. I’ll be at stand J003 if you can’t find me.

Please also note that I will have limited email access and time over the next few days so if you would like to get in touch please continue to do so and I will try and get back to you as soon as possible.

Here are a few sneak previews of what you can expect to see at the handmade by me stand…

I am super duper excited to announce that I have received funding to exhibit at the lovely and prestigious Design Indaba Expo later this month. Its all a bit chaotic with only 3 weeks to prepare for this momentous conference, but I already have some exciting ideas and cannot wait to show my products to the rest of the world. So as you can imagine it is going to be pretty crazy over here for the next few weeks, but I really hope that some of you will be able to come and see what an amazing selection of design talent south africa has to offer. If you are lucky enough to be holding a ticket to the Indaba itself I am screaming jealous as it really is such a wonderfully inspiring conference with a fantastic line-up this year! For those of you who don’t, the expo is open to the public and well worth the visit!

And something I am also REALLY excited about is that Visi Magazine has featured me as one of their “Fresh Talents”. This is such an honour as there are some seriously talented people featured alongside me, and because I am SUCH a fan of Visi Magazine, I would really like to share the interview here with all of you.
