Considered by some to be the westernmost point of the beautiful Garden Route, Riversdale is a historical town that has plenty to see and do. One of its features is the Thiart Woodwork Studio, where Fritz Thiart can be seen with his head down and his hands busy creating beautiful forms and furniture from wood that is just waiting to realise its true potential.

This is an art form, and watching pieces take shape is truly inspiring. It soon becomes clear that woodwork is about so much more than mass production. It is about smelling, feeling and really seeing the wood; working together with it for a breath-taking result.

The Thiart Woodwork Studio produces gorgeous furniture and household goodies that stand apart from the usual store items. In addition, they produce Wendy houses, built-in cupboards, gates, outdoor furniture, shop fittings, and more. With off-cuts of top quality wood, Fritzís wife, Maritha, makes beautiful coasters, serving trays, cutting boards, salt and pepper shakers, and so on. Whether you like a minimalist look or a cosier country feel, Fritz and Maritha produce exquisite pieces to suit your home and tastes.

All of these handcrafted items add so much to your home or office, and make for stunning gifts for friends and family back home that want to treasure a piece of South Africa. In addition, items can be sent anywhere within the country.

Riversdale is at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains; about three hoursí drive from Cape Town, and about four hours from Nelson Mandela Bay. The Garden Route is along the N2, and is a must-see for visitors that want to experience some of the most stunning aesthetic wonders of South Africa.
