Visit the weavers!
Jun 2019 • Couples
This venue is interesting on two counts - firstly, it houses the Karoo Looms weaving project and secondly, the building itself is noteworthy, as it served duty as a bioscope from the early 1900's onwards.
Today there is a weaving industry established here and beyond the foyer, where there are examples of finished work on show, you can see workers at the spinning wheels and the looms. A large mat was in the process of being made when we visited.
The interior with its high, steel-pressed ceilings and balcony are evidence of its previous function as an entertainment centre.
