An evening with exhibiting artists whose media includes print, painting, ceramics, papier-mâché and even plants – Kate Carlyle, Kallie Doran, Amelia Jakobs, Sue Kingma, Clare Menck, Igna Schwartz, Jenee Rosse and Judy Woodborne (see list below). Haas CEO, Francois Irvine, will be creating what he calls Babette’s feast style table with a variety of traditional and not so conventional offerings (see menu below). Delicious Grenache Rose and unwooded Chardonnay from Vriesenhof Vineyards.
Haas is a large “hip space with Victorian flair” (top-rated.online) on the viby, East side of Cape Town, near the A4 Foundation, District 6 Museum and Fugard Theatre. Being a big space there is plenty of room for social distancing and good ventilation. All staff wear masks and wipe down surfaces as soon as they clear. Please remember your mask and cancel if you are ill (a full refund will be given).
This exhibition is not on for long and will be a great place to spoil yourself and buy Christmas presents – from one off jewellery to textile art – all lovingly designed and made in Africa (mostly Cape Town).
It will be a really special celebration – a visual and culinary treat; the artists are excited.
6pm for 6:30pm until just after 9pm but do slip away (or arrive) at a time to suit you.
Cost: R650 payable in advance.
Book soon as limited numbers. Only those who have booked and paid in advance will be able to come; it is afterall a First Thursday in Cape Town now back in action with Covid19 protocols in place.
