Streetwires, situated in the ever-buzzing Cape Town suburb of Woodstock, has their focus on people, passion and pride. This is a growing business that allows local artists and crafters to combine their creative journey with business ventures and the prospect of selling their goods to an international market.

This project was launched in 2000 with the aim of training and supporting those that may otherwise be unemployed, giving them a platform on which to create beautiful things and make them available to the world. Today, Streetwires exports these stunning handmade crafts to more than 15 countries around the world.

These artists create incredible wire pieces that are as unique as they are intricate. But, this is not the traditional wire-and-bead work that has characterised South African arts and crafts for years. Rather, it is modern, aesthetically impressive, and incredible in scale and detail. In addition to gorgeous pieces for the home, Streetwires also produces jewellery, accessories, ornaments, “mounted animal heads” (all bead and wire), corporate gifts and custom pieces.

The Streetwires shop and the studio are perched alongside one another, just across the road from the Old Biscuit Mill. This gives visitors the opportunity to watch the creatives as they form gorgeous pieces from little more than inspiration and hard work.

Team building and other events have never been more fun than at Streetwires, where workshops are on offer for groups that want to learn how to create beautiful pieces. This is also a fantastic option for tourists, as you get to take a little piece of Africa home with you after spending time with local artists and learning more about this craft.

Woodstock is a hive of activity, known for its quirky coffee cafés and one-of-a-kind shops. Exploring its streets and buildings is always an adventure. It is only 10 minutes’ drive from the CBD of Cape Town and many of its most popular attractions (including Table Mountain and the V & A Waterfront), and is less than 20 minutes from the Cape Town International Airport.
