Our Workshop Projects

Our Workshop Projects is a sister company to Our Workshop NPO. It is a private company which sells products and services to private and corporate clients, thereby providing financial support to the NPO and it’s members. 

Initially there was a hope to access funding from government and other grant funders, but we haven’t been able to get that right yet. Therefore we started the Pty(Ltd) to keep our heads above water and to continue the important social and environmental work we do in Langa.

Below are all the projects we've done - in chronological order

V&A Watershed festive decor 2019

Midway through 2019, we received a really massive and exciting commission from Platform Creative to make festive decor for the Watershed at the V&A Waterfront . This was a monumental move for the Waterfront; they chose to move away from the traditional imported decor used by most malls, and rather had decorations made by local craft and design companies from around Cape Town and South Africa, creating great growth opportunities for many locals. Many thanks to Platform Creative
