Today’s home is a reflection of its people, gone is the need to look like the Joneses. Our homes are authentically us, stripped of pretence. Product transparency is also a growing trend; we shop with a higher conscience focusing on wellness and sustainability, wanting to know the person or story behind our purchase.
This year the Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo brings you the stories and the best products in home improvement. The Expo is where you can come face-to-face with the craftspeople or knowledgeable experts who provide visitors with the best understanding of the product.
The show helps to expand dialogue between homeowners and suppliers also offering ways for you to see, touch, feel and compare products and services.
The 2019 theme of Raw Comfort, embraces perfect imperfections, and through various talks and demonstrations we will show you how to get in touch with a more organic world.
Show features include:
The Tuis|Home Theatre
The ever popular tuis|home theatre is back with food, wine and DIY demonstrations. Join us for a fun filled programme that will leave you skilled and inspired!
Books and Banter Theatre
A first ever and exclusive to Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo, we will host a Wordsmith Theatre where Editor’s will gather in forum, where book publishers will sit amongst the writer and where we can comfortable look deeper into the life’s and stories of everyday bloggers. Meet these book / digital heroes that we so often meet inside the books/tabletssitting on our bedsides.
The Raw workshop will bring a wealth of interesting demonstrations where craftsmen show off the beginnings oftheir product of trade. Find yourself at the heart of the development of manufacturing lines of products that we dream and plan to have in our homes.
Some of the raw products that you will get to know better in this theatre involve the making of steel creations, glass, wool and weaving and of course the ever popular medium of cement. Meet us in the Raw workshop where we will bring a refreshing showcase of how to work with concrete and how to use it in your décor. Proudly brought to you by World of Decorative Concrete.
