.... described as a " socially conscious art collective” (Elle blog 2008)
Magpie was established 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 our Studio and Gallery space in
Barrydale, Western Cape.
The work we do links art, design and craft with meaningful commercial and social
entrepreneurism, integrated with environmental concern.
Our whimsical, charming and bespoke creations are produced from a broad range of
medium and often incorporate repurposed, found, memorabilia or recycled
