Nuusbrief 12 Desember 2013

Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting orgraffiti knitting, is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays ofknitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.  While yarn installations – called yarn bombs or yarnstorms – may last for years, they are considered non-permanent, and, unlike other forms of graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary.  While other forms of graffiti may be expressive, decorative, territorial, socio-political commentary, advertising or vandalism, yarn bombing was initially almost exclusively about reclaiming and personalizing sterile or cold public places.  It has since developed with groups graffiti knitting and crocheting worldwide, each with their own agendas and public graffiti knitting projects being run.      more info

I am pursuing my other passion, of baking, and to this end have set up a small and comfortable coffee shop in the gallery. I will be serving coffee and tea with a small but delicious range of cakes and tarts. I use only free range eggs and butter in my baking and will constantly be whipping up new mouth watering creations.

 

Baie dankie vir die geleentheid wat ek weereens gehad het om die kelnerkursus aan te bied. Baie dankie vir die ondersteuning wat ek kry van die plaaslike Toerismeburo en ook van die besighede wat hulle werknemers borg. Ek leer net so baie by hulle en ek geniet die entoesiasme en leergierigheid van die jongmense. Daar is ongelooflike potensiaal in ons jongmense en ek is nou nog meer as ooit oortuig dat nog meer leergeleenthede geskep moet word om ons jongmense te bemagtig.    meer info/more info

Droom Nuus 8/Dream news 8

'n Volgepakte saal het met groot afwagting gesit en kyk na die deur waardeur Kersvader moes kom.  Dit was 'n alternatiewe Kersvader.  Hy het nie sy aankoms met 'n klok aangekondig nie, hy het dit met 'n vuvuzela gedoen.  Soos wat hy deur die gange gestap het op pad na die saal het hy al harder geblaas.  Toe hy die deur stadig oopmaak en vir oulaas 'n harde blaas gee, het die kinders begin handeklap en geskree van opgewondeheid.  Die oomblik was groot!            more info

We wish we could publish photos of all the children that attended the Christmas tree, but unfortunately it is not possible.  If anyone who donated a shoe box wants to see who received it you can visit Erina or Jadé at the office.  Photos have been taken of all the children who received shoe boxes.                        more info

Gedurende die stap het ons weer rommel opgetel in ons poging om 'n skoner en gesonder dorp te bou.  Daar het byna 30 kinders deelgeneem aan die optog.               more info
