Traditional Arts Studio and Coffee Shop
WHO WE ARE
Traditional Arts and Crafts Studio
The Ladder Traditional Arts Studio was established by Nicholas and Anastasia Esterhuizen with the goal of nurturing an appreciation of traditional arts and craftsmanship from around the world. Through workshops, exhibitions and events we hope that by studying and applying what we learn from art traditions of the past and present, we will be able to re-discover the beauty of the order of nature and re-apply this beauty and harmony to our daily lives and broader community.
Mon - Fri: 7am - 4pm
Sat: 8am - 2pm
