The SHAC, opened in May 2019, is a dynamic destination where visitors can see a diverse range of artisans and artists at work in their studios creating work or browse in our dedicated art gallery space. One-of-a-kind artworks are for sale in The SHAC Gallery and direct from the artists and artisans. The public, designers and architects can also commission bespoke work or see visiting artisans doing talks and lectures.
We also hold regular workshops where you can learn from our talented artisans and guest tutors, or rent a space and host your own workshops. There is a current space available for workshop, retail store or exhibitions....or a combination of all three!
The world-class Moonacres School will also move into The SHAC in late 2019 adding to the ever-growing collective buzz in Robertson.
