 “Ek is sedert my aankoms hier in 2000 maar met die kunste deurmekaar en het nog altyd van my eie studio gedroom,” vertel Michelle Fourie van Needle & Pins in die Great White Junction. Verlede Saterdag is Michelle se droom verwesentlik met die inwyding van haar studio, Izinki, wat sinkplaat beteken.

“Ek moes lank spaar om die studio te kon bou en vir ekstra fondse het ek prente op sinkplate geskilder wat ek verkoop het, vandaar die naam Izinki vir my studio,” vertel sy. Die belangstelling was so groot met haar eerste aanbieding dat sy net 16 leerders kon akkommodeer en die res vir eerskomende Saterdag moes geskeduleer. Dit is ‘n 1-dag kursus en Michelle het op Tokreenkuns gefokus, wat daarop neerkom dat elke dame enige item, in hierdie geval ‘n skoen, kon kies om ‘n kunstige ornament van te maak. “As deel van my droom vir my eie studio, was dit ook my droom om dames uit te lig uit hul persoonlike- of werksomstandighede deur hulle die bevrediging van die kunste-wêreld te laat ervaar,” sê Michelle. “Sodoende kan hulle ervaar dat hulle iets daadwerkliks bereik het en goed oor hulself voel wanneer hulle hier uitstap.”
