Saturday 4 February

10.30 am–12.30 pm


Maximum number of participants 25

Get inspired by the art, collections, home and garden of the iconic South African artist Irma Stern (1894–1966). Let museum staff take you on an informal tour to tell you about the behind-the-scenes stories of Stern’s life in her former house, now the UCT Irma Stern Museum, and show you some key pieces of the collection. There will be a welcome tea and coffee and light sweet treats on the veranda after the tour.

Proceeds from the tour will go towards funding an equivalent tour for members of the Philippi community.
