pottery STellenbosch

We are so stoked to be up and running in this beautiful student town! From our Humble roots in the Garden Route, we felt that Stellenbosch would be the perfect place to bring our creative and social experience. Along with our delicious food and cocktail menu you can browse, shop and paint items from the world renown Wonki Ware™ brand to create your very own work of art. Each ceramic piece is locally made with the firing and glazing process being done in house to ensure to give it its very own magical story. The Pottery Stellenbosch is the perfect place for a meeting, date night, birthday or special occasion with our unique curated café experience making sure you keep the good vibes only.

Pottery Painting

Enjoy a creative adventure by designing your very own Wonki Ware™ plate. Artists of all ages and abilities enjoy choosing from our selection of fun ceramics items and getting crafty with paints and brushes. You can enjoy our healthy menu items while you paint.

  1. Select an item from our shelves. We have a range of handmade Wonki Ware™ bisque pottery items and themed ceramics including side plates, dinner plates, mugs, bowls, platters and trinket dishes.
  2. Take a seat in our café and enjoy a double thick smoothie.
  3. Our staff will deliver a box of vibrant paints as well as brushes, stencils and pencils. Dip your brush into some paint  and let your imagination run wild.
  4. Watch our artisans at work. The potters dip and glaze the bisqueware at the store and fire the pottery in our own kilns.
  5. We will contact you within seven to ten days to collect your masterpiece. Make sure you have signed or photographed your item. It might be worth money someday!

From Small items to big items, our prices range from R125 to R600. All paints and firing is inclusive. Due to the delicate and sometimes unpredictable nature of clay and the imperfectly perfect nature of this natural raw material, different items respond differently to the glazing and firing process. Cracks occasionally occur, and sometimes make the pieces even more beautiful! Relish the blemish!

Groups & Parties

The Pottery Stellenbosch offers a fantastic venue to host a special day for various occasions such as kitchen teas, bridal parties, baby showers, or birthday parties. Give our store a call, and let’s work together to tailor-make your event according to your desires. Our in-house team can prepare the tables to your specifications, making it the perfect way to celebrate any special occasion. Let’s celebrate you and your crew, good vibes only.

wonki ware™

Inspired by the vibrant, warm spirit of Africa; Wonki Ware™ is a trendsetting world leader in handmade pottery. This proudly South African business was founded by creator and entrepreneur Di Marshall, in the Garden Route town of George, over twenty years ago. Wonki Ware™ Pottery is now internationally recognised and endorsed by celebrity chefs such as Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver and actress Cindi Crawford.

The Wonki Ware™ collection includes timeless and classic tableware, and colourful decorative items. Their extensive catalogue includes dinnerware including elegant Etoshas, serving platters, jugs, mugs, bowls, tiny ramekins and salt dishes. To this day, every single item is made by hand. The potters use clay sourced from the Eastern Cape and each piece of pottery passes through the hands of at least 14 individual artisans on its journey from wheel, to kiln and finally to the table.

Wonki Ware™ now has a team of 100 skilled potters working in their Garden Route factory. Many of the staff are from disadvantaged backgrounds. Each craftsperson embraced Di Marshall’s passion for pottery to become a skilled artisan. By empowering young South Africans to develop their creative skills, this home-grown business has thrived against the odds.
Wonki Ware™ Pottery inspires creativity and continues to have its own ‘perfectly imperfect’ character and unique charm.

Each ceramic piece is locally made with the firing and glazing process done in-house ensuring it is given its own magical story.
