Cape Craft & Design Institute

Cape Craft Design Institute
The Cape’s crafting community, including from the production of ceramics and bead products to wire works, wood sculptures, textiles and much more, is a productive and innovative one, offering you our most welcome visitor some wonderful keepsakes and mementoes as a result.

The Cape Craft Design Institute (CCDI) supports craft producers, including craft producers, designer-makers, retailers, marketing agents, product developers, skills trainers and mentors.  Its mission is to develop people and to build profitable enterprises, with marketable products for global markets in an enabled environment.

Supporting creativity in the city

The CCDI has three core programmes, providing support to creative entrepreneurs in the areas of Product, Business and Market.  It provides an environment in which craft producers can further develop their existing products, and prototype new products.  In addition it offers training and learnerships to develop craft producers’ skills in creativity, business management, production and marketing.  There is also mentoring assistance and a referral system for craft enterprises.  It also helps craft producers to define their targeted niche markets and to reach them through channels such as local craft markets and consumer shows, retail outlets and trade show. 

The CCDI promotes Cape craft under the brand of Handmade Cape.

In addition it has three programmes that support the development of the sector.

1. Rural Outreach - the CCDI supports craft producers throughout the Western Cape.
2. Communications - a monthly newsletter and website to communicate to producers.
3. Resource Development.
