Kim Sacks, whose has run this extraordinary gallery for close to 30 years, is a local expert on all things African craft and handmade. This is not a store at which to find curios, it is place to encounter the breadth and depth of African artistry and craftsmanship and to discover a world of beautiful objects that carry great traditional significance as well as contemporary pieces such as exquisite and fine porcelain vessels.
Each object carries a history and Kim Sacks and her team are more like tour guides than shopping assistants. The interior of the store is dramatic, and will leave any visitor impressed by its careful curation – an ever-changing display of beautiful things.
Kim Sacks Gallery also packs, insures and ships door to door all sizes of cargo to across the globe, so whatever your purchase it is easy to transport it home.
Pottery and ceramics classes
Kim Sacks also runs regular pottery and ceramics beginners courses and master classes from her studio which is currently based in Bellevue but which will move to the gallery in Parkwood from March 2020. Classes are open to beginners and those with more advanced skills. See the gallery website for updates.
