At the Wokini Market

The ‘closing event’ of the Napier Patatfees (Napier Sweet Potato Festival) was the art-, craft- and food market at Wokini; a few kilometers out of Napier.

A visual impression:

The Baardskeerdersbos Art Route



This weekend (Saturday and Sunday 19-20 March and each day between 10AM and 5AM) art of numerous local professional artists and guest artists (like Yvonne de Wit) are on display at diverse locations in Baardskeerdersbos in the Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.

But besides for art there is more to see in this small village tucked away in a valley somewhere between Bredasdorp/Napier and Gansbaai/Franskraal. A stroll between the diverse artist houses gives the visitor sometimes the impression that the BBossers live and work in a different time period. Park you car somewhere, walk and see.



Traveling off the beaten track leads to discoveries. Take for example ‘Marie’ in Church Street in Gansbaai. It’s a kind of gift/art shop in a road parallel to the main road that leads to the whale watching and shark diving boats. Although it does not look like it on the outside; inside has a lot of original surprises many similar shops in the big city (Cape Town for example) can only dream of. Oh … and Marie loves her nails so she also does ‘nail care’.


The Day After …..
