Resident Calligrapher and Letter Artist

Heleen de Haas

Heleen  is a South African calligrapher , letter- and conceptual artist and teacher 

Her work has been published internationally and has been exhibited both internationally and nationally.  

Apart from being passionate about teaching (traditional, contemporary and experimental styles of calligraphy), lettering design and collaborating with other artists, she loves taking calligraphy off  book pages and out of frames into everyday life

Her special field of interest is making the invisible visible: using lines to convey meaning, creating work with soul and presenting retreat-like workshops to awaken creativity 

Visitors to the area are most welcome to come and stay in the various self catering or camping accommodation options or visit the studio, view the original calligraphic art by international calligraphers, have a look at Die Letterhuis (which is an installation in its own right), do the prayer walk and the Word labyrinth,  walk the hand carved stone route or view the land art installations along the river in the Poplar wood. On the farm is also the tiniest of tiny galleries with ceramic and calligraphic work on display as well as a uniquely designed Word Labyrinth
