Die Letterhuis

Around Die Letterhuis you will find various calligraphic and letter art installations. On the koppie next to the house there is a semi enclosed contemplative area overlooking the Poplar trees and the Grootrivier.

 

The prayer route is a 30 minute easy stroll starting at Die Letterhuis. It follows a disused water canal through a Poplar forest to the river. Along the route there are many calligraphic gems upon which to reflect. In addition to the prayer route there are three more routes (including a land art and hand carved stone route) that follow the flow of the river.

Inside the more than a century old Letterhuis you will find original calligraphic works, letter castings by Belgian letter carvers Maud Bekaert and Kristoffel Boudens , handwritten letters on the walls, hand printed curtains and original calligraphic woks

 

Outside, dancing brushed letters decorate the huge three dimensional letters between the architectural Sisal plants alongside the R407

 

May you find enough time to enjoy all the beauty!

 

 

Binne in die eeu oue Letterhuis is die kalligrafie en letterkuns op die  oorspronklike mure 'n fees vir die oog en gees.

Buite lei 'n tweespoorpaadjie  na groot drie dimensionele letters tussen die Garingbome wat van die R407 sigbaar is en

die 30 minute lange gebedsroete tussen die populierbome in die ou watersloot agter die huis loop al langs die Grootrivier.

Oraloor is daar Godsfluisteringe teen die bome geskryf. Naas die Karooroete is hierdie een van vier inspirerende kunsroetes wat ook

al langs die rivier kronkel en landkuns en handgebeitelde klipwerk insluit

Kom kuier gerus hier waar verkwikking 'n woonplek het!
