Yesterday was the official opening of the V&A Waterfront’s Watershed development. The 50 million rand redevelopment of the former Craft Market and Wellness Centre, commonly known as the Blue Shed and the adjacent unused Workshop 17, is good news for Nondyebo Art. Nondyebo has been trading from the Blue Shed for several years as reported previously on our blog. During the redevelopment her stall was one of many that was moved to a less obvious location the Robinson Dry Dock. Now she is one of 150 small businesses housed in the prestigious development, with exposure to the millions of local and international visitors that the Waterfront welcomes on an annual basis.
Nondyebo Art now have a listing on the V&A Waterfront business website, which can be viewed HERE.
Masicorp continues to assist Nondyebo grow her business. To celebrate the launch of the new venue we have arranged for Ben Nimmo from Solid Ground – who runs a graphic design studio in Muizenberg – to develop a new logo for the business. A new website is also under construction.
In addition Masicorp volunteers have recently helped Nondyebo to better organize her bookkeeping practices. This will save her time and allow her to interact more efficiently with the South African Revenue Service, thus allowing her more time to work on the key activities of her business – producing innovative and beautiful individually hand-painted linens.
