In 2018 the museum joined the Fragrance Fest with a slideshow on Friemersheim and the Volkwyn chair. Make this a first stop to find out more about the Fragrance Route, Friemersheim and the Shweshwe Stop work creation project. You can also buy limited edition miniature Volkwyn chairs created by wire artist David Manando.
Two free slideshows in the Outeniqua Room will tell you more about the history of shweshwe and all you need to know about the versatile PROEbag. Made by local women in Friemersheim, this amazing invention is a non-electric slow cooker with numerous other uses as well. (Another version of this product made the Time Magazine “top 50 genius products worldwide” list in October 2018.) A percentage of all miniature wire art Volkwyn chairs sold at the museum goes towards the Great Brak River Museum Fund.
HOURS: Open Monday to Friday from 08h30 to 16h00, other days on request.
