Swellendam Winter School (SWS)
De Oude Pastorie guest house is a sponsor and also offering special rates to our guests when attending a SWS course.
An extraordinary and unprecedented cooperation between all community members has brought to life.
The Swellendam Winter School from internationally renowned figures to local legends… Swellendam is full of gifted artists, talented musicians, creative writers, enthusiastic hobbyists, crazy adventurers, knowledgeable experts, inspiring entrepreneurs, meditation muses and many more. Somehow a small team, pulled everyone together and created a unique and exciting project.
The Swellendam Winter School is designed around 6 themes:
- Mind & Body
- Food & Wine
- Creative Arts & Design
- Nature & Heritage
- Home Crafts & Design
From May to August …. The whole of Swellendam is becoming a ‘school’, the kind of school you could only dream of when you were a child! No boring stuff – just activities that were never on the mainstream curriculum. A school for adults, though family friendly as well.
The Winter School has over 50 courses: from Bread Baking to Soap Making, from Horse Riding to Mind Development, from Bird Identification to Organic Gardening, from Hand Printing to Furniture Painting… and so much more. Courses are either 1 day, 2 days or five days in length and will be in venues all over Swellendam – some of them in facilitators’ homes, some in conference rooms and some in very surprising places!
