Creativity & Art
The Klipopmekaar mountain wilderness, family & friends
provide inspiration for a range of fun creative pursuits
Klipopmekaar’s rock formations, plants, animals, and the rich history of the Cederberg region provide inspiration for a range of fun creative pursuits on the farm.
Klipopmekaar’s farmer, Richard Bowsher, is also one of the Founders of AfrikaBurn. Inspired and endorsed by Burning Man (held in the USA), AfrikaBurn is a not-for-profit, freedom of expression, and creative arts festival which is held annually nearby in the Tankwa Karoo. And Klipopmekaar is conveniently located for co-creation and production of fantastical art installations for AfrikaBurn.
Upcycled sculptures & art
Together with friends, family and farm manager Paul; Richard & Karin frequently produce various sculptures and functional creative items from recycled steel, recycled materials, and old agricultural objects found on the farm.
None of the art created is for sale. The emphasis is simply on all having fun together and exploring creativity in the beautiful Klipopmekaar wilderness. The Klipopmekaar logo is inspired by our farm entrance gate sculpted in 2006.
