I recently advertised comprehensive courses out of my new studio in Rivonia, namely weekdays, Monday to Thursday 9.30 am  to 1.00 pm  for October and November, at R1,800 for the 4 weeks course.
Response from another region (KZN) has requested that I conduct the course over weekends, i.e. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Additionally a couple of local Potters have also found this option to be attractive.
On consideration I would also enjoy this option, as I think it may give more cohesion and flow to the instruction.
In addition, I am able to supply accommodation on my premises for the 'Out of Towners’ if needs be.
November the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th weekend is booked already, but I do have one more place.
Hereunder is the original advert. - all the details are applicable for the weekend course as well.
Another gap has identified with weekends, in that after lunch, those who may be staying 'in residence' may wish to use a further 2 hours to 4 pm.
This would be entirely optional, at R200 for each day, and could also include locals.  A light lunch would be provided for those as well.

Kindest regards,
Drury Brandt

To launch my NEW CERAMIC STUDIO in Rivonia I am offering a series of Specialist Hand Building Courses during October and November, commencing on Monday 30th September through to, and including Thursday 28th November 2013.

Course blocks consist of classes one day a week for four weeks, from Monday to Thursday from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm.

Participants will be taken through a total exercise of clay slab preparation, making of items, decoration by various methods, both pre- and post Bisc firings and final glazing.

I will demonstrate and assist participants with my techniques and methodology, the shortcuts I have learnt whilst doing many courses and workshops I have attended both here in South Africa and overseas.

I will share my knowledge of glaze making and recipes of the glazes I use.

All work will be fired in oxidation and, time permitting, I will try to fit in some RAKU as well.

Tools and materials will be supplied but participants should bring their own specialist tools and under glazes.

Cost is R1,800.00 for the four week course, payable at registration.

Parking is secure and inside on the property.

I can be contacted by cell on 082 574 5800 and on e-mail at

LANDSCAPE PRINTS  |  Until 29 May  |  East Gallery
In this exhibition we find landscapes from the permanent collection, made from different printmaking techniques such as etching, linocut, silkscreen and lithography.

The word entered the English language at the beginning of the 17th century, purely as a term for works of art. Landscape art is a term that covers the depiction of natural scenery with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.

Exhibition at Digby Hoets Studio

First ever exhibition by Digby Hoets and students                                                             
plus Garth Hoets, Lesley-Ann Hoets, Harri Hoets & Leigh Hoets
at his studio at 125, Springfield Rd, Carlswald, Midrand
11- 12 May 10am to 5pm

Digby Hoets has been teaching pottery and making his own pots since 1973.  Many South African potters and ceramists have started their careers in his studio and continue to work there.  Digby's home and studio are located on a 2 hectare property in Midrand's Carlswald valley - a tranquil, green enclave within an area which is now better known for high density housing developments, office blocks and shopping centres.  Digby's students, many of whom have been with him for the last 20-30 years, are already accomplished potters in their own right but continue to use the facilities provided by the studio for the stimulation they derive from working with Digby and fellow students - the setting of the studio in a beautiful well-treed property with a dam and wetland also adds to the attraction.
Cinda Hunter has her unique 'shop' on the property.  She will be open on Saturday and Sunday. Cinda travels extensively to source her jewellery, furniture, artefacts, textiles, clothing and accessories from India, South East Asia and Africa. 083 284 1818

There will be tea,coffee,biscuits, muffins etc but you are welcome to bring your own picnic.

She specializes in one off porcelain and stoneware pieces with an emphasis on decoration.
Wendy started the South African Crafts Council with Eugene Hön in 1991 as she felt the crafts in South Africa needed an umbrella body to represent them on broader issues.
