Centre of Ceramic Excellence and Education
When a picturesque property nestled above the Constantia valley was donated to the Light From Africa Foundation in 2011, ART in the FOREST was born. Led by Anthony Shapiro, this non-profit social enterprise is now a well established centre of ceramic excellence and education.
Art in the Forest is a thriving ceramic centre with full time artists, associate artists who rent cubicle space and a communal space. The studio offers ongoing pottery classes, workshops and interactive ceramic courses such as ceramic science and ceramic history taught in modules. Our gallery showcases up to 6 ceramic exhibitions per year featuring leading ceramicists of the country.
Profits made at ART in the FOREST are donated to Light From Africa Foundation and used to fund outreach programmes that allows disadvantaged children to have access to art.
