Markets

Market in Haenertsburg Village (Image Courtesy of Sandi Leigh Moore)

This year there are two great places to shop and browse all that the Spring Festival has to offer. The original venue for the Spring Festival has traditionally been the Magoebaskloof Hotel and this year the tradition will carry on at the hotel with a range stalls based there.

In recent years the Haenertsburg Village Hall has proved to be a popular addition to the Spring Festival and this year it returns again with a great mix of stalls.

The Raku process has been enthusiastically adopted worldwide since its origination in Japan in the latter part of the 16th century. “Raku” means happiness and it is also the name of a dynasty of Japanese potters whose works were often chosen by tea masters for the well known Japanese tea ceremony. Clay, bisque fired and glazed, is put into a hot kiln (900°C) and when the glazed surface turn to a glassy shine like melting ice the clay article is pulled out hot, then smoked in a container with organic material and finally quenched in cold water to stop the heat action. Popular modern Raku is often characterized by a velvety black body contrasted with black-stained crackle of white, blue or turquoise glaze.

jjclJJ Clark Artist
JJ Clark studied art at Open Window School of Art and completed a BA Fine Arts Multimedia degree at UNISA. He lives on a cattle farm in the Limpopo province and his aim is to create art in nature that is inspired by nature. Organic shapes, textures, colours and patterns found in nature as well as the effect that light, shadow and reflection give, excite and inspire him, and through his art he tries to capture the essence of these elements. Working with and learning about Nguni cattle inspired his current theme of portraying them with soul, dignity and respect to oppose cattle’s exploitation as commercial farming commodities.

SOME OF THE STALLS ON OFFER THIS YEAR IN THE VILLAGE


health-and-energy3Health & Detox
Health & Detox was started in the year 2000 as a small business operating from home. Besides selling health products I was also offering Ozone Treatments and got involved in working with addicts to heavier substances. I was involved in helping SANCA in the detoxifying of their patients with the Ozone Machine, and providing advise on a healthier lifestyle in general. It is my mission to inform and educate people, on the healthy alternatives. Discussing the ailments, which products may be used to cure or to benefit. Normal medicinal drugs merely pushes the disease deeper within the body tissue and does not heal the underlying problem, this causes more serious diseases such as cancer to manifest itself at a later stage in life.
