ONLINE BOOKLET Winter School Guide
|The beautiful, historical town of Swellendam is full of gifted artists, talented musicians, creative writers, enthusiastic hobbyists, crazy adventurers, knowledgeable experts, inspiring entrepreneurs, meditation muses and many more.
They have all come together to create a unique project; during the months of June, July and August, Swellendam is hosting over 75 courses for adults – some 3 days, some 5 days, some weekends. All those things you would have loved to have done at school – but they just weren’t on the curriculum! Along with traditional Crafts, Art, Painting and Writing, there are brilliant courses on Food and Wine, A Walk on the Wild Side, Flora and Fauna, practical courses about car and motorbike maintenance – adventure courses like Rock Climbing and there’s even a Rock School – create your own recording in only three days!
Ideal for Capetonians looking to get a bit of a break from the city and have a immersive experience in our stunning, safe town with no water restrictions! During the three weeks of the school holidays we are running an extra programme concurrently for kids aged 10 and up, so families can book and each do something different
Treat yourself to a winter break like no other in this gorgeous small town, where you will be made so welcome
|This is a unique initiative where townspeople from all walks of life have come together to provide an insight – not just into their areas of expertise but also their lifestyle and surroundings in this safe, beautiful town

Bev Missing (Founder of Rain Africa)
Andries Gouws (Artist)
Ingrid Winterbach (Author)
David Schlapobersky (Potter)
Tony Laurens (Rock Climber)
