Elliot Art Gallery

The Elliotts have been in the Art Workshop and Painting Course business for 35 years, during which time more than 4000 creative folk have shared the magic of the brush, canvas and palette with them.

Their earlier Art Holidays were held at Mount Aux Sources and San Lameer, before they conducted their acclaimed Knysna Painting Holidays from their Leisure Isle studios for almost two decades...2004 saw the venture into their biggest challenge yet - to create and build the ultimate art facility in Villiersdorp- their newly adopted Western Cape Town. Villiersdorp is situated in the winelands between the Boland and the Overberg - one of the most picturesque areas of Southern Africa. From these superbly appointed premises Dale and Janny Elliott, and their son Mel and his wife Carine, conduct their multi level art courses throughout the year. The complex also has a beautiful gallery displaying their work, as well as framing, catering and admin faciliteis. The Elliott’s also have a gallery in Knysna, showcasting their latest work.

Margaret Ramsey

After searching throughout South Africa for an ideal place in which to settle, Margaret and Darryl decided on Villiersdorp in the Western Cape where they settled in 1999. She joined the Elgin Art Group of artists and within three years was painting in watercolour, acrylic and oils. Margaret’s artistry has gone from strength to strength; she works and exhibits at her studio in her lovely home in Villiersdorp and her work is sold widely.

Helderstroom Alpacas

Helderstroom Alpacas

At Helderstroom we breed and raise alpacas. We also shear, card and hand spin the fibre into yarn, which is then hand knitted, woven or felted and made into a range of stylish, warm and unbelievably comfortable garments.

Alpaca is the world's most luxurious fibre: warmer and softer than lambs’ wool, more hard-wearing and more exclusive than cashmere. Welcome to the world of alpaca - the most eco-friendly animal fibre on the planet. Visitors by appointment
