We’ve entered the month of February and though there are still Covid-restrictions in place, there are some fun things to do this month.
Rupert Museum: Science meets Art
The Rupert Museum has a very interesting exhibition on at the moment, which makes use of indigenious art to address stigma in mental illness (such as depression) and neurodegeneration-related illnesses (such as Alzheimers). It is a combined project between the departments of Visual Art and Physiological Sciences from the University of Stellenbosch. Images of cell structures, fluorescence images, artworks and crafts are on display until February 2021. The aim of this project is to help communities better understand these illnesses, by explaining more of what these illnesses entail. For more information, have a look at their brochure. Entrance to the museum is free.
Workshop at Babylonstoren
Babylonstoren’s famous workshops do not disappoint. This February they are hosting their popular water-wise workshop – on the 10th of February from 10am – 3pm. It will be led by Ernst van Jaarsveld, a top botanist, who will share all the best tips and tricks. The workshop will start in the garden, after which Van Jaarsveld will give a talk and answer questions. There is lunch at the Greenhouse Restaurant included in the price. Spots are limited, so book your spot now.
Sunset to Full Moon hike at Muratie
On 26 February you can join in hiking the hand-built trail running from the Trail Centre at Muratie to a look-out point, Gilloolys, with spectacular views of the Winelands. You will be able to see the moonrise and sunset. The circular route is 3.5km in total. Don’t forget your picnic basket. Book your spot now.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and there are lots of ways to make it memorable this year. Look out for our special blog on ways to celebrate it later this month.
Don’t miss all the tennis action of the ATP Tour in Melbourne this week!
