Wiid Design | Something spectacular at the brewery!
January 11, 2016

Wiid Design creates pared-down, perfectly proportioned pieces that are defined by handmade elements and obsessive attention to detail. Skillfully combining traditional handcrafting and avant-garde techniques, Wiid transforms materials into life-enriching and durable-furniture such as stools, benches, side tables, planters and dining tables, as well as lighting and tableware.

The CBC Craft Colab will showcase some if Wiid Design’s signature cork and ceramic pieces, as well as collaborative works by artists Ceramic Matters.
The inspiration for the CBC Craft Colab comes from the fact that both companies have a passion for quality and detail in their craft/art, therefore this is a perfect opportunity for Wiid Design to showcase their products in CBC’s wonderful brewery.

A poem inspired by Wolfgang
January 11, 2016

Skryf met lyf is ‘n kombinasie van wie Mia is, wat sy sien, en waaroor sy wonder.
Dinge uit my en ander lewens wat ek oplet, neerpen en uitvou in stories, gedigte & gedagtes.

Idees ry op woorde rond, en met die deel van my skribbels hoop ek om mense te help dink oor nuwe dinge,
uit vars hoeke, en om nuwe buite en binneplekke te ontdek in die proses.

The inspiration for my piece:
Something Wolfgang said in our interview. “I can change my little radius,
and if I do that, I’ve done something.”

Design for #CraftColab2 | Mareth Colleen
January 11, 2016

MARETHCOLLEEN is the brainchild of Mareth van der Walt and Colleen Lesch, a forceful fashion duo that resides in Cape Town. A fully-fledged creative partnership and the production of a range of ready-to-wear women’s apparel.Using locally sourced talent and materials, the passionate pair produces a diverse range of quality garments. The range places a strong emphasis on intricate beadwork.

We always do hand beaded items and love incorporating them into our collections so when we went to visit the CBC brewery we found the interior and all the machinery’s shapes and metallic hues very inspirational. The gunmetal colours of the bottling line, silver stainless steel of the draft taps, tanks, copper lamps, golden amber of the Harvest Lager and the golden orange of the Mandarina Bavaria IPA. We decided to incorporate these colours and shapes into a hand beaded neckpiece. The sheer mesh top finishes off the look and adds a touch of femininity.

Kwartels en Manna | #CraftColab2
January 11, 2016

Charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit – Kahlil Gilbran, The Prophet

“Inspired by nature in its purest form, we are passionate about using seasonal, locally sourced materials to create and curate one-of-a-kind, bold and emotionally provoking installations.

Our CBC installation is inspired by the value of time-honoured processes and the organic combination of movement, balance and contrast; elements that together, personify nature. In our expression, Kwartels en Manna celebrates the consideration of craftsmanship, skill and passion, artistic endeavor and impact of work done by hands, the acumen of precision, and appreciation of every detail of the process. Because, creating a truly exceptional beer is (nothing other than) a refined art.” – Tarien Odendal

CBC Craft Colab 2 | Fanny Chanel
January 11, 2016

Fanny Chanel is an honest flavour driven passion for ice-cream. Making ice-cream the way is was made in 1930’s. Maggie Beer once said “Time can be tasted in Food”, this is how i feel about ice-cream, tasting the flavour in its purest form. To be making ice-cream for a living is such a blessing and a dream come true._MG_5424

Wolfgang’s passion for what he does is infectious, he has integrity in what he does and he does it well. He focus’s on the best quality ingredients for his beers which you can taste. It’s not just about the beer, it’s about the process, the people, the malt, the hops. In saying this; my inspiration comes from not just using the beer, but to use what goes into the beer & fermentation process. People can then taste 3 different aspects (ingredient, process, end product) of the CBC beer making process.
