  • Description


    Hi there :)

    My friend and I run a kite house in Bloubergstrand. We're currently looking for someone to help with art projects in the house, think murals/signage/mosaics etc. Some help with the social media would be a plus, but not necessary.

    We don't tend to work your typical 5hrs/day, 5 days a week workaway standard, there are no fixed hours. We can just discuss times together, depending on what other plans there are (good waves/wind/whatever).

    The house is 5 minutes walking distance to the kitesurfing beach and bars/supermarket/restaurants. It has a pool, hammocks, slackline, fireplace, braai and more fun. You'll be staying in one of the beds in the dorm (shared space, 8 beds). Unfortunately I can't offer food, but I'm happy to cook together to keep costs low.

    Essential skill:
    - Artist/ creative person

    Bonus skills:
    - Building things
    - Photography
    - Video editing
    - Social Media

    Looking forward to meeting you!

    Cape Town is simply the best place in the world to me. You'll never get bored hiking, surfing, kiteboarding, diving, wine tasting, exploring beaches, eating at the countless amazing restaurants, partying and road tripping. Just to name a few.

    The house is in the Blouberg area, meaning 20-25 minutes by car from Cape Town centre. We go into Woodstock almost every day though. There are buses and Uber into town though and I have a car and will regularly take us.

    I'm looking for creative people, who are good with painting (mural art, ombre walls etc)/wood/construction work and just generally craftsy. I have lots of projects/ideas (better even if you have more) but 2 left hands, so I'm hoping to find some right hands.

    If you've done similar things before, it would be great if you could show me some of your work when you write me.

    Photography/video editing is a bonus, but just that is unfortunately not what I'm looking for.
