Our uplifting and fabulously festive Watershed installation is a celebration of all the inspired and inspiring creative businesses that contribute their can-do attitudes and exceptional craft or artistry to this vibrant destination for local design. The bold geometric print with beaded surround that you see on many of the striking baubles above you are the inspired designs of ONEOFEACH. Owned by dynamic mother-and daughter fashion duo Tamburai and Pauline Chirume, ONEOFEACH bridges art, fashion, design and social impact, underpinned by a spirit of creative authenticity. With sustainability as a core ONEOFEACH consideration, all printed with traditional motifs that draw inspiration from across the African continent, and items like silk scarves, clothing and bags are produced in very limited editions to offer uniqueness and individuality. ONEOFEACH is also behind the establishment of the groundbreaking African Academy of Fashion in Cape Town. The Academy bridges the between the higher education system and workplace, providing a platform for young women from underserved communities to acquire skills to increase their employability prospects within the fashion industry, or to potentially start their own creative businesses. Art From The Heart Have you noticed the vibrant painterly print of many of the disk baubles in this installation? Its scanned from an original artwork – acrylic paint on canvas – by artists Alda & Sylvain Bikindou of Thabi Art Fusion The creative duo were encouraged to pursue their art careers through inspiring encounters with more established artists, who promoted painting as language for self-expression and hope, and who generously mentored aspiring artists like Adla and Sylvain. Imagine what would be possible if more successful creatives committed to inspiring, nurturing and supporting future generations to follow their dreams? Artistry & Inventiveness The artistry and incentives of KnotAgain knows no bounds. Co-owned by sisters, Hlah and Linnet Nyoni, KnotAgain was birthed in 2015 when the duo noticed a gap in the market for unique home products made using the ancient practice of macrame. Applying a thoroughly modern aesthetic vision, KnotAgain creates artisanal masterpieces woven and knotted from locally supplied cotton, Jute and recycled T-shirt yarn. Say the duo: “All our pieces are handmade using knots, so no two are ever identical. What makes pur products stand out is their artistry and articulation.” Inspiration is everywhere all around us – if you just look out for it! It takes the courage of an artist to unlock it. Just ask Bishop Tarambwamwe and his masterful skills when it comes to wire. Have you spotted the bright, bold yellow letters and happy-faced suns? Watch bellow to see how he brings inspiration to life with his hands.
