Creative Workshops in Napier

Most tourists only know Napier of landmark; the DR-Church, a magnificent building. They pass the village and stop only to make a picture of the church or go into one of the eateries. But there is sooo much more. Napier is a destination in its own right with not only artists but with a toy museum (by appointment) beautiful vistas (just take the time to explore the back roads); a miniature steam engine maker (with global export), a military museum, a pottery, the largest sundial in South Africa, a 90 yr old woman making bird dens for sale at ‘Greta’s Place’ along the main road (many collector’s items over there), etc. etc.

Since recently Stellar Lodge and Private Gallery Napier also offer three day workshops jewellery making, painting and photography for beginners (including light lunch etc.).

But what makes this village also an outstanding multi-day destination is that is centrally located in the Overberg with places as Gansbaai, Cape Agulhas, Hermanus, Arniston, Swellendam and Greyton within 1 hour drive. For an active affordable holiday think twice….
