.... described as a " socially conscious art collective”

 

 

Magpie was established as a Studio in 1998 by Cape Craft Icon Scott B. Hart

 

and Social Entrepreneur Shane A. Petzer (Ashoka Fellow).  

 

 

 

In 2003 Magpie relocated from Cape Town to Barrydale.

 

 

        In 2006 Fine Artist Sean Daniel and  Administrator

 

Richard Panaino joined to expand the Studio into the MagpieArtCollective.

 

 

 

         The Magpie Collective  believes the work they do often links art and design with

 

meaningful  commercial and social entrepreneurism integrated with environmental concern.

 

 

      Their whimsical, charming and bespoke creations are produced from a broad range of

       

 medium and often incorporate repurposed and found or recycled elements into their

 

enchanting works.

 

 

In addition to the Studio creations, they undertake commissions and installations and

 

participate in exhibitions. Magpie also produces a range of exciting craft-project-

 

linked products.

 

 

From design, through to execution the Magpie's work reflects their

 

philosophy and innovative approach.

 

 

The MagpieArtCollective is based in Barrydale, South Africa
