Cape Homemakers showcases latest trends

The 17th annual Cape Homemakers Expo will take place from 23 to 26 August, 2012, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) and will showcase the latest trends ranging from home improvement products to décor ideas.

With 350 stands showcasing inspirational and trend setting new ideas, and with over 80 different product categories, you will be sure to find something to suit your taste. Not-to-be-missed feature areas include the Home/Tuis DIY Workshop, the décor and accessories area, the Audiovision Sound Emporium, d'Vine Life, Future of Design, as well as an exciting project for all art enthusiasts and collectors, ClockArt.

In the Home/Tuis DIY Workshop, experts will share their knowledge and top tips with you, whether it's building, fixing, recycling or upcycling.

Visitors will find a collection of contemporary and cutting-edge style ideas in the décor and accessories area. This focused area will offer advice on the latest colour palettes, designs and trends.

The Audiovision Sound Emporium will offer a substantial range of the most advanced, new-generation digital home entertainment, sound distribution and digital imaging products.

The good life

You can indulge in the good life at d'Vine Life, with a selection of the Cape's finest wines, great cheeses, olives and other gourmet goodies.

The Future of Design will celebrate the innovative Upcycled design by South Africa's local leading talent. It is an even greener way of recycling - find a new purpose for your unwanted items before you chuck them away.

Another very exciting project this year is ClockArt. A variety of artists, including fine artists, designers, ceramicists, fashion designers and mosaic artists were invited to create a wall clock. Visitors are then invited to view and bid for the clocks, which will be on display for the duration of the Expo. All funds raised will be donated to The Big Issue.

Entrance for adults is R60, pensioners R40 and children younger than 12 enter free of charge. The Expo will be open from 10am to 8pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and from 10am to 6pm on Sunday.
