Magpie Team 2011 A.Steyn

 

.... 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 2006 Magpie expanded and Fine Artist, Sean Daniel and Administrator, Richard Panaino joined to make up the MagpieArtCollective. The Collective relocated from Cape Town to the Barrydale Studio where they are now based.

 

They  believe the work they do links art and design with meaningful commercial and social entrepreneurism. 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.

 

 

The Rooi Doppies Project is their social action framework. Through this conceptual project they link themselves as a collective to their surrounding community by engagement with local community income generation projects, crafters and civil society endeavours.

 

From design, through to execution the Magpie's believe their work reflects their philosophy and innovative approach.

 

The MagpieArtCollective is based in Barrydale, South Africa
