Discover the world of South African ceramics, one of the most dynamic and diverse on the pottery planet. Take part in a learning journey around Cape Town that dovetails with an explosion of collaborative events hosted by Ceramics Southern Africa’s (CSA) activities in the month of November and endorsed by the 2014 World Design Capital.
Join Magdalene Odundo OBE as award-judge at CSA’s National Exhibition, the highlight of South Africa’s ceramic calendar which showcases high-end, home-grown creativity – and as guest speaker at From African Earth, a collaboration exhibition between CSA and Iziko Museums of South Africa.
Kenyan-born, Professor of Ceramics at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, Surrey, UK, Magdalene will share her sources of inspiration while demonstrating her approach to hand-building techniques in a full day’s workshop.
Master classes, learn ceramic history in South Africa, visit the wine country, dine with the ceramic masters.activities included for non potters.

Sounds great! I have met several S. African potters on the Potters Council tours in Tuscany. I hope they plan to participate. Magdalene Odundo is a legend in her own time. How great to hear her.
Thanks for sharing the news of the event. Please post pictures of the demos.

Aloha, just heard that Magdalene Odundo will be accompanying the members of this small group tour to other venues on the itinerary so it will be a fabulous opportunity to spend time with her outside of her whole day workshop. What an opportunity! Don't miss this trip. There is still space.
