Each session costs R200p/p, materials and refreshments and market entrance are included.
Hosted at Simondium’s Country Lodge located between Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, this leisurely shopper’s paradise is complimented by magnificent Winelands scenery, as well as some of the Cape’s finest traditional dishes, sweeping golf courses and relaxing spas.
