Never in my wildest nightmares did I envisage another lockdown due to #️⃣Covid-19. After being confined since 5th March, we managed to get our Work Access Permits on Saturday. What an incredible relief! Although we cannot run our #️⃣craftworkshops yet, we can at least go to our new premises, where we move to at the beginning of March and get things organised.
Our new building is situated amongst large old trees in a parklike setting. Its lovely and cool and one hears the birds singing as it is very quiet as well. The building is situated on the old sugar factory grounds at THE MOUNT SUGAR ESTATE, Mongout, Pamplemousses. The Purple Lime Foundation (non-profit) has established THE CREATIVE QUARTER which is a training centre for arts and crafts. Its very easy to find and you can give Jean Claude a call on 59368660 and he will explain exactly how to get there. We have left our old premises in Calodyne, although unfortunately the old address still shows on our website due to an oversight.
Our workshops will start as soon as the lockdown is lifted. We have some very exciting ideas to share which are sure to get your #️⃣creative juices flowing. We are introducing some new crafts which are not common in Mauritius – some we believe are new to the island.
We hope that you will come and share a fun-filled morning in a creative atmosphere. You never know – you may just find a new #️⃣passion to follow!
