Art in the Forest – Constantia

I found a hidden gem last week.

While visiting The Original T-Bag design company in Hout Bay, Gill the owner asked if I had been to see ART IN THE FOREST.  She proceeded to give me directions and we decided that even though we were supposed to be on tour – with the heat wave on – the idea of exploring something in a forest was rather appealing.  As such we headed up the mountain from Hout Bay, at the circle you turn left as if you are turning to Newlands and then do an IMMEDIATE left onto a little dust road – there is a little sign that shows you are on the right path to Art in the Forest.  This little drive through the forest is gorgeous!

After a few minutes you arrive at an absolutely gorgeous house in the forest.  This is the home of a non-profit organization and is a venue that artists can work and sell their goods.

There is some amazing art here – so it is well worth the drive.  In my opinion it is well priced as you are in fact buying from the artist.

In order to fund the project they are always looking for ways of fundraising – a fun way to raise funds would be for people to use this awesome building for functions or for picnics – on a smaller scale – have some coffee when you are there – and leave a donation for the coffee.  This project really appealed to me!  For more info contact Bianca Pieper from the Light From Africa Foundation. http://www.lightfromafrica.com http://www.facebook.com/lightfronafrica Tel 021 7940291
