In 1985 Fèe Halsted-Berning lived on the farm, Ardmore, in the Champagne Valley under the shadow of the Drakensberg Mountains. Her first art student was Bonnie Ntshalintshali whose natural aptitude for ceramic art soon attracted other students. This led to the creation of Ardmore Lavendula, the largest ceramic art studio in South Africa, situated close to Nottingham Road and Mooi River. The large group of sculptors and painters who produce ceramics under the Ardmore label amply demonstrate the diversity of talents that has emerged under Fèe's tuition. There will be time to visit the ceramic shop to see some of the prestigious handcrafted designs.
