Stilbaai is a haven for artists and one will find a variety of artists here, in Jongensfontein and in Melkhoutfontein.
Art includes paintings in a variety of mediums (water colour, acrylics, oil), drawings, painted shells and rocks, bronze sculptures, pottery, mosaic, photography, glass slumping, leather and ceramics.
There are also ‘Art Retreats’ where artists – and even the not-so-arty – can learn how-to-art while there are classes for children and for adults.
One will also find quite unique artists in Stilbaai – like Hannalie Taute who works with rubber (particularly inner tubes) and embroidery. She says: “By using traditional embroidery techniques (mainly satin stitch) unto an unconventional canvas (rubber) I aim to make the familiar unfamiliar.”
