Artisans on the Fleurieu
Hand-made jewellery, paper, cosmetics & more
South Australia has a wealth of fine artisans, creating special items using skill by hand and an eye for beauty. This month we are visiting a complex shared by several artisans.
In the Fleurieu town of Willunga, the Artists in Residence provide a delightful experience of working artisans showing the products of their own hands. Jeweller Melissa Puust, paper and printmaker Vicki Reynolds, and organic cosmetician Cherie Em have an amazing range of their own wonderful products.
We are welcomed by one of the members, and have time to wander and explore. It’s a great opportunity to pick up something special for a gift, or a treat for yourself! Even if you don’t wish to purchase you won’t come away empty-handed – the artisans have a small gift for you to enjoy!
From Willunga, we travel further down the Fleurieu Peninsula to Yankalilla, where we are booked in for a delicious lunch at the local hotel. We can chat about what we’ve seen while we relax over a two-course meal.
In the afternoon we take a delightful drive back towards Adelaide, with the gorgeous scenes of the Fleurieu landscape around us as we travel.
This will be a fascinating day with friends on the Fleurieu, so come along and join the fun!
