Step into Re-Freshed @ The Gorge, a delightful shop nestled within the Graskop Gorge Lift Company complex, and embark on a journey of artistic discovery. Browse curated shelves brimming with unique pottery, handcrafted treasures, and locally sourced delights, each one waiting to add a touch of magic to your home or heart.
Re-Freshed is a labour of love, brought to life by a talented trio: Sharon Paterson, a multi-faceted artist, her daughter Tracy Joubert, an interior design magician, and Leon Kruger, their skilled business manager. Together, they've created a space that showcases not only Sharon's exquisite creations but also the work of talented individuals she's mentored over the years.
Wander through the shop and be captivated by the diverse collection. Sharon's hand-crafted pottery, ranging from delicate mugs to vibrant platters, will undoubtedly catch your eye. Explore woven textiles bursting with colour and texture, each one imbued with the artist's story. Be sure to admire the intricate beadwork and shimmering stained glass pieces, testaments to the artisans' craftsmanship.
Re-Freshed goes beyond just visual treats. Immerse yourself in the flavours of South Africa with locally sourced goodies. Savour the rich aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans from Sabie Valley Coffee, indulge in savoury biltong made from ethically sourced beef and game, or treat yourself to sweet delights like Cape Town-made sweets and nuts.
The heart of Re-Freshed lies in its commitment to community. Sharon, a passionate advocate for empowerment, has spent years working with artisans in Pilgrim's Rest and Ballito, equipping them with valuable skills and providing a platform for their creativity to flourish. Each piece you purchase carries within it not just artistic expression but also the story of someone empowered and uplifted.
