LoveAbility Functional Arts and Crafts ~ Hawston Hermanus
You will find very interesting LoveAbility functional arts, crafts and all sorts of beautiful objects made by the enabled team of people with disabilities. (Please look through the images below.) It is triple-worth the feel-good-factor to buy beautiful and interesting gifts and actually give thrice – once for supporting such a worthy cause, secondly by sharing the love by giving it to someone and thirdly by creating awareness of this beautiful community cause.
LoveAbility Functional Arts and Crafts ~ Hawston Hermanus produces soap and room spray from local organic ingredients. The group in charge of the paper mache range uses only recycled materials. The ceramic team produces a range of badges for a regular order for the Right to Care Aids project. Similar pins have been made for the Democratic Alliance and a municipality initiative in honour of Woman and Children of the community. They produce ceramic tiles on commission and a range of slip cast items in the pottery studio. Their personalised mugs are very popular. They hope to use the studio as a venue for ceramic painting workshops. Once a month their wares are for sale at the Hermanus Country Market.
